Work commences on £11m upgrade at Glasgow hospital
BAM Construction has begun work on a new upgrade to Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow where services in mental health are set to be improved.
In partnership with hub West Scotland, and on behalf of NHSGCC, the main contractor is site with the £11 million upgrade which will see the delivery of brand new acute mental health wards dedicated to adult in-patient care as well as functional health issues.
Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd is assisting with the delivery and is providing a full turnkey Mechanical and Electrical Services package, from digital engineering through to the installation consisting of all plumbing, heating, ventilation and sprinklers as well as lighting, fire, security, data and power systems.
The firm will also utilise an innovative prefabricated solution to create corridor and plantroom service modules.
Arc-Tech returns to the health sector having recently completed works with NHS Forth Valley. The company has also previously worked with hub West Scotland in Inverclyde on two primary schools and an early learning centre located in Gourock and Greenock respectively.
John Gallacher, managing director of Arc-Tech, said: “Arc-Tech are delighted to be involved in the Stobhill Hospital contract alongside BAM Construction and Hub West Scotland. We are no strangers to the Health sector and will ensure that we are respectful to the operational environment of the hospital itself as well as maintaining our trademark levels of workmanship and customer service.”
As a direct result of the contract, BAM Construction has donated two Portakabins to the Springburn Park Men’s Shed, a charity that supports and resources for men of all ages suffering from depression and loneliness. In offering additional support, Arc-Tech provided electrical services to help provide power.
John added: “It is important to give back to community and charity organisations. The Springburn Park Men’s Shed is a fantastic initiative and we more than happy to provide our support.”
