The New Victoria Hospital

Client: Balfour Beatty Construction Limited Value: £78m

The new Victoria Hospital treats around 400,000 patients annually by offering integrated diagnostic and treatment services including outpatient clinics, day surgery, rehabilitation, and specialised emergency services, thereby introducing an ambulatory model of one stop care in South Glasgow based on the following key principles:-

• Increased accessibility to ambulatory care for the local community
• Prevention of emergency work adversely affecting the efficient delivery of elective care
• Improved quality of patient focused care
• Streamlining of the patient journey to provide a one stop service
• Achieving compatibility between healthcare delivery and technology in a fit for purpose building

Within the context of this clinical brief, the new building has been designed to respond positively to its unique urban setting in relation to both Battlefield Cross and Queen’s Park. To reduce the impact of surrounding traffic noise and ensure the comfort of patients and staff, the hospital has been conceived as a highly insulated “sealed box” incorporating full environmental and comfort cooling. As a result of a sustainable approach to design throughout, an “excellent” BREEAM rating has been achieved.
