Muir Construction selected to build new Livingston nursing home
Randolph Hill Nursing Homes Group Limited has appointed Fife-based Muir Construction to build a new 60 bedroom nursing home in Livingston.
Work on the new home, being built on the site of the former Livingston Development Corporation site, will begin on 25 November and is expected to be completed by February 2021.
Randolph Hill is investing £9 million in the development which will become the group’s seventh nursing home.
The company currently cares for more than 350 residents and employs over 500 members of staff at sites across east and central Scotland. In April, Randolph Hill re-opened its nursing home in Gullane following a £9m rebuilding and expansion project which was also delivered by Muir Construction.
Peter McCormick, managing director of Randolph Hill Nursing Homes Group, said: “Following a competitive tender process amongst highly reputable Scottish-based contractors, we are delighted to announce we’ve appointed Muir Construction for our newest care home development in Livingston.
“Having recently worked with the firm on our refurbishment and extension of Muirfield in Gullane, we have first-hand experience of Muir’s ability to manage challenging projects and deliver the high standards.”
He added: “Our investment in this new Livingston site will help fill a gap in the current care home offering in West Lothian and bring new jobs into the local community. It will also enhance a long-derelict site in the town and benefit the wider community.
“We look forward to working with Muir and getting this project completed by early 2021.”
