Mansell commence work on Rowling Neurology Clinic
A project to build a neurology research centre alongside the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh has moved on site after receiving a £10m donation from Harry Potter author J K Rowling.

The £10m Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic is named after Rowling’s mother, who suffered from Multiple Sclerosis, and will undertake research into a number of degenerative neurological conditions.

A complicated build process will necessitate implementation of a traffic management system to maintain access to neighbouring hospital and university buildings throughout the construction period.

Callum Leslie, regional director in Central Scotland for Mansell, says: "To be involved in a commission such as this further cements Mansell's standing of delivering innovative projects within the field of medical research. It follows on from our involvement in the construction of the third and final phase of a new cancer research facility in Glasgow - The Beatson Translational Research Centre.”

The scheme, designed by Keppie, is due for completion in late autumn 2012.
