BAM to build Scotland’s biggest health centre in Parkhead
BAM Construction has been appointed by hub West Scotland to build North East Health Centre in Parkhead.
Located on Salamanca Street, the facility will be delivered on behalf of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Glasgow Health & Social Care Partnership.
Set to accommodate 900 staff, bringing together a number of community health services currently located at nine different sites, the building will be Scotland’s biggest health centre once complete.
The £35 million design and build contract will feature a three-storey building, spanning 10,000 sqm of clinical, support and training space and car parking. It will enable Glasgow City Council and NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde to develop more integrated and efficient ways of delivering critical public services across the North East of Glasgow.
The hub will provide GP surgeries, a pharmacy, specialist children’s services, district nursing, health visitors, social work services, older people’s mental health services, learning disability services, sexual health services; addiction services, meeting rooms and a café.
Bruce Dickson, regional director at BAM Construction, said: “We are delighted to be part of the team delivering this visionary health hub. This is a model example of the future provision of health services moving away from a hospital setting to a community-based location which is readily accessible with good transport links.”
Designed by Hoskins Architects, work on the facility will commence on-site in summer 2020 and will be delivered in phases with a scheduled for completion early 2025.
Iain Marley, chief executive hub West Scotland, said: “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with BAM Construction and are confident that this very important project will build on past successes. That confidence comes from the quality of collaboration on previous projects and BAM’s experience in the health sector.”
BAM Construction is currently working on delivering Stobhill Hospital’s dedicated mental health campus and Greenock Health Centre.
