Ryden to draw up former Royal Murray Hospital masterplan
Commercial property firm Ryden has been commissioned by NHS Tayside to prepare a masterplan and planning applications for the 23 acre former Murray Royal Hospital, Perth.

This follows delivery of a new hospital which has made the existing buildings, some of which are listed, surplus to requirements.

Work will now get underway with key stakeholders; including Perth and Kinross Council and Historic Scotland, with a view to submitting formal planning applications in March 2014.

Marc Giles, partner at Ryden said: “This is a significant contract for us as we are dealing with a major opportunity site currently occupied by a number of listed buildings.  We anticipate substantial public interest in the project which offers the opportunity to deliver a high quality development in a stunning landscape.”

Ryden was appointed through its membership of the Regional Agent Partnership.

Looks like a lucrative project, well done Ryden and the surveying fraternity, will you be providing the ‘architectural services’ as well as the masterplanning?

I remember thirty odd years ago when Ryden were just estate agents and a firm of architects might well have had their name on this sort of project.

As an example, it begs the question, what happened in the meantime to cause the ‘erosion of status’ in the architectural profession in Scotland?
