Kier selected to build surgical centre in Clydebank, UK

WCN Editorial Team 9 Aug 2021 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Kier has been chosen by NHS Golden Jubilee to build a new £43m Surgical Centre at its Hospital in Clydebank, the UK.

This latest contract comes after Kier’s completion of the Eye Centre for the Hospital and is part of the hospital’s expansion programme.

The contract has been procured through Frameworks Scotland 2.

The Surgical Centre will offer a range of facilities, including theatre suites, a surgical admissions and recovery unit (SARU), a surgical administration space, central sterilising and processing department facilities, endoscopy unit, orthopaedic amenities, outpatient and pre-operative spaces, as well as staff wellbeing spaces.

Once complete, this centre will support the hospital to provide more than 9,400 new outpatient consultations, over 4,400 pre-operative assessments and more than 13,900 other procedures.

 Kier will make use of modern methods of construction (MMC) throughout the construction, including a hybrid pre-cast concrete frame.

The envelope of the building will be pre-cast with windows and brickwork being completed off site.

The project is expected to complete by June 2023.

Kier Regional Building North & Scotland regional director Phil McDowell said: “Following on from our recent success with NHS Golden Jubilee delivering its new Eye Centre, we are proud to have been given the opportunity to continue to deliver for patients and the local community with this prestigious scheme.


“We have extensive experience delivering healthcare schemes and we will utilise our skill and technical excellence to deliver a first-class facility for the hospital and people of West Scotland.”

NHS Golden Jubilee chief executive Jann Gardner said: “We are delighted to be working with Kier on this exciting project as we continue to expand our services for the people of Scotland.

“We recently marked the completion of Phase 1 of our expansion with the opening of our new, state-of-the-art, Eye Centre: the first of the National Treatment Centres. This started treating patients in November 2020 and this year is estimated to carry out over 12,000 cataract procedures, an increase in the numbers of patients at least 3 years ahead of schedule.

“We now look forward to benefiting patients across Scotland with our new Surgical Centre, which is due to be completed in 2023. The new Centre will carry out planned operations and focus on demand areas such as additional orthopaedic, diagnostic endoscopy, and general surgery.”
