BAM Construction has been appointed by hub West Scotland to build Scotland’s biggest health centre in the Parkhead area of Glasgow.
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.
North East Health Centre, located on Salamanca Street, will be delivered on behalf of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Glasgow Health & Social Care Partnership, and will accommodate 900 staff, bringing together a number of community health services currently located at nine different sites.
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, 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 will commence on site in summer 2020 and will be delivered in phases with a scheduled completion in early 2025.
BAM Construction is currently working on delivering Stobhill Hospital’s dedicated mental health campus and Greenock Health Centre.
