Design team appointed to deliver new Royal Hospital for Sick Children
March 6 2014
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.
