The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Lithuania has announced plans to launch a tender process to develop a parking infrastructure at Santariskes medical campus in Vilnius.
The project will be developed on a design, build, finance, operation and maintenance (DBFOM) basis for a period of 25 years. The total investment is estimated at €16 million (US$21.8 million).
Tadas Jagminas, director of the Project management department at Invest Lithuania, stated:
Bearing in mind the fact that the number of medical institutions, as well as the number of visitors and patients, is expected to double in the next 25 years, this project is both an exciting investment opportunity and a crucial means of improving the infrastructure. This expansion of the parking infrastructure in Santariskes medical campus will present challenges, so we are looking for companies with knowledge and experience in managing complex parking projects in busy health service environments.
The new parking will have a capacity of about 2,250 places. The project also involves the reconstruction of the existing parking spaces. The estimated shortage of current parking spaces is about 937 places.
The deadline for the submission of applications for participation and pre-qualification documentation is 31 July 2014.
Santariskes is the biggest medical campus in Lithuania. The facility currently occupies a territory of 64 hectares and hosts eight medical institutions as well as research facilities. The campus receives about 1 million patients and visitors per year, and 5,000 professionals are employed at the facility.
