High Wood Health was named as the preferred bidder for the contract to deliver the 350 bed facility, for which outline plans were first drawn up by Keppie Design.
Project director Dennis O’Keeffe said: “Following an intense period of competitive dialogue and evaluation, we are pleased to announce High Wood Health as our preferred bidder. Their proposed solution is one that brings to bear a consortium of designers and contractors with considerable expertise and resources to fulfil our expectations.”
Jeff Ace, chief executive for NHS Dumfries and Galloway added: “This is the major milestone that we have been working towards for months now, along with two bidders who have produced the final designs for the kind of facility that we need so that our staff can deliver the best care possible for our patients.”
The new hospital will open its doors to patients in 2017/18.
