Partnering with a world-leading hospital to develop a health campus masterplan.

With a reputation for delivering imaginative and high-quality commercial developments, Prime was a clear choice for University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) when considering the development of a new Park and Ride facility and formation of a new health campus.

After the successful completion of previous joint ventures, Prime is once again helping UHS to devise a masterplan that meets both current and future demand.

UHS is a major acute hospital, employing almost 12,000 staff and as the major university hospital on the South Coast, it provides acute and elective care and the full range of tertiary medical and surgical specialities to over 3.7 million people in Central Southern England and the Channel Islands. It is also well-established as a world-leading research, training and academic centre.

With this mixture of health and academic facilities, there is a high demand on the infrastructure of the site, in particular, parking for staff, patients, students and visitors. In addition, there is no additional expansion space available to the Trust within the estate. Looking to tackle some of these critical challenges, UHS partnered with Prime to explore the possibility of developing a Park and Ride facility to enable a more positive and stress-free journey to the hospital.

With extensive experience of finding and securing suitable sites, Prime helped UHS to identify a suitable location with good proximity to the hospital and the ability to develop flexible use buildings. Adanac Park is situated to the West of hospital campus and is easily accessible from the M271 which connects the M27 with Southampton City Centre.

With space for both a park and ride facility and development of a health campus, the new site will help create offsite parking to ease congestion on and around the site, as well as enhancing the experience of site users. In addition to these benefits, Prime has helped UHS devise a financial model that will generate income from parking charges which can be reinvested into frontline health services.

Prime’s expertise in stakeholder engagement have ensured consultation activities and information sharing are strategically planned, and clearly demonstrate to the community the improvements which can be achieved by the proposed scheme.
