Firm to build first phase of the £42m redevelopment of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital.
Contractor Galliford Try has been announced as preferred bidder for the first phase of the £42m redevelopment of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital.
The firm’s Morrison Construction arm has been appointed by the South East Scotland hub to deliver a 15,500m2 mental health facility at the hospital.
The new facility will provide services for the adult acute mental health inpatient service, intensive psychiatric care, a national brain injury unit, mental health rehabilitation and older people’s mental health assessment and treatment services.
Galliford Try’s facilities maintenance business has also been appointed to provide hard maintenance and lifecycle management over the next 25-years. This contract is worth around £18m over the period.
Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Galliford Try, said he was “delighted” the firm had won the job.
He added: “This appointment demonstrates the strength of our business across our construction, facilities management and investments teams and we look forward to working with hub and NHS Lothian to create the top class facilities the local public deserve.”
