Kier selected for £ 43million deal at Clydebank
The Â£ 43million contract award is part of the hospital’s expansion program and follows the completion of the eye center by Kier.
Kier will use Modern Construction Methods (MMC) throughout construction, including a hybrid precast concrete frame, with the building envelope being precast with windows and masonry completed off-site.
The project, which was acquired through Frameworks Scotland 2, will include facilities including theater rooms, surgical admission and recovery unit, surgical administration space, central sterilization and treatment facilities , an endoscopy unit, orthopedic equipment and ambulatory and preoperative spaces, as well as staff well-being spaces. The building will help the hospital provide more than 9,400 new outpatient consultations, more than 4,400 preoperative assessments and more than 13,900 other procedures.
At least 65% of its supply chain will come within a 30 mile radius of the hospital. Kier will also offer a range of opportunities to the local community, including at least ten apprenticeships, internships, job opportunities and career interviews in schools.
The project is expected to be completed by June 2023.
