£200m Dumfries Royal Infirmary officially unveiled
Plans to build a £200m replacement for Dumfries Royal Infirmary have been officially unveiled by the consortium of Laing O’ Rourke, Ryder and Serco.

To mark the launch preferred bidder High Wood Health have published a set of interior perspectives illustrating care facilities patients can expect from the 350-bed hospital.

Commenting at the launch NHS Dumfries and Galloway chief executive Jeff Ace said: "High Wood Health have taken our reference design and produced a design for a fantastic new facility which will be built within exceptional surroundings.

"The design complements our plan for a new model of care both in terms of how our staff will work together in the new hospital, and with our staff across the region."

Dumfries Royal Infirmary is expected to reach financial close in early 2015, with construction work beginning shortly thereafter for completion by spring 2018.

Seems like there will be a lot of glass given what the perspectives show. Considerations like cleaning them at higher levels, sustainability ie heat gain and excess winter cooling are I trust factored in to the running costs.I would be keen to know if they are going for biomass boilers /heating .Anybody know the details of that yet?
