In Hub South East’s largest project so far, NHS Lothian is redeveloping the Royal Edinburgh Campus in a number of phases over the next 10 years. Morrison Construction has been involved right from the start, helping to shape the brief, facilitate stakeholder engagement, secure planning permissions, and ultimately achieve financial close to allow construction to begin.
This exciting redevelopment programme will replace inpatient facilities at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital with modern, fit-for-purpose healthcare buildings. Phase One redevelopments include new accommodation for the adult acute mental health inpatient service, older people’s mental health assessment, Intensive Psychiatric Care Service (IPCU) and the new Robert Fergusson national brain injury unit.
Following the success of last year’s co-location of NHS, Hub and Morrison Construction staff, the partnership has continued to develop positively, resulting in a site start in early 2015. Work on site is progressing to schedule and is set to be complete, on time and on budget by the end of 2016.
“NHS Lothian welcomes the partnership approach demonstrated by Hub in this project. The success of the relationship has given NHS Lothian the opportunity to explore more opportunities with Hub South East to procure further phases within the Royal Edinburgh Campus and East Lothian Community.”
Andrew Milne, Programme Director, NHS Lothian.
