Ryder takes the reins of Nord’s Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice
Ryder Architecture has taken the reins of Nord’s Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice at Bellahouston park, Glasgow, after being appointed as delivery architect by the charity.

This follows the closure of Nord’s Glasgow studio and the departure of its staff.

Alastair Forbes, project lead from Ryder, said: “I am delighted to be part of this special project again following my involvement from project inception at NORD.

“We are very excited about the opportunity of developing the innovative design, based on the Sengetun model, that supports the high quality end-of-life care that is firmly patient and family focused.”

Work on the £21m build is expected to commence in June to provide a 16 bed in-patient facility alongside support and family spaces.

"To lose one hospice contract may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness."(with apologies to Oscar Wilde)

It's an odd way for Nord to "consolidate operations". Consolidating them at other practices? I'm not sure that this does "happen all the time"! We know Nord has no employees (except a director who lives 17,000 miles from Glasgow) and no office. Does is actually have any work?

£21m for a 16 bed in-patient facility? Something wrong there !

From what I know this is no news at all... AF and some other staff left Nord a few years ago, took the project with them. Mutual agreement between Nord and Ryder.
