Work commences on Aberdeen care ‘village’
NHS Grampian has begun construction of a £24m Community Health and Care Village in Aberdeen.

Located on an existing surface car park on Frederick Street the 6,500sq/m scheme, designed by JM Architects, will accommodate a diagnostic and treatment centre alongside a 185 space car park.

It is intended to shift the balance of care from large hospitals to a more friendly and accessible environment that is modelled on a traditional ‘village’.

This includes a central square or atrium which doubles as a reception space, from which services can be accessed via a series of internal streets, all wrapped under an ETFE roof.

A ‘garden buffer’ will be created adjacent to the busy Frederick Street to mitigate pollution and noise whilst a listed former granary building will be retained.

The centre is being built using a design, build, finance and maintain contract with Miller Construction acting as main contractor.

Construction work is already underway with completion expected in December 2013.
