Wellcome Wolfson Centre for Translational Medicine at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital Wonford for the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust
This major medical research and development project is a joint collaboration between our client, the NHS Foundation Trust, and the University of Exeter, with the added support of various other institutions including the Wellcome Trust and Wolfson Foundation. The envisaged project cost is £19.75 million.
The project, which is intended to be procured as one of the first major projects under the Department of Health’s Procure 21+ framework, requires complex contractual arrangements governing the relationship between the two development partners and reflecting a major development on the extremely busy site of one of the largest NHS hospitals in the South West. We are advising on the development agreement, the building contract and the respective professional appointments. We are also dealing with the grant of a long lease in favour of the University for the new facility.
