 Design team appointed to deliver new Royal Hospital for Sick Children
Integrated Healthcare Solutions Lothian, a design team comprising Brookfield Multiplex and HLMAD, have been named as preferred bidder to design, build and maintain a new Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh by NHS Lothian.

The team beat two rival bidders for the work, which will bring together services currently provided by the Western General Hospital and Royal Edinburgh Hospital on one site for the first time.

Peter Reekie, director of finance and member of the project steering board, Scottish Futures Trust, said: “It's fantastic to reach this milestone on such a significant hospital project. Robust project preparation and the strength of the NHS Lothian project team, combined with SFT's simplified NPD programme approach had led to a highly efficient and competitive procurement.

“I look forward to working with the team and preferred bidder to deliver construction activity later this year, which will be welcome news to many local businesses.”

It is the first acute hospital to be delivered under the Non Profit Distributing (NPD) model with construction work expected to start in autumn 2014 for completion by summer 2017.

Is that a chimney at the entrance?

Lets hope it's not a disaster like the ERI which is badly designed and too small.

Not a chimney, looks like it is clad on 3 sides from the oblique aerial shot.

@wizbang More likely a stair tower or lift I would think.
