Work begins to improve mental health facilities at Stobhill

UPGRADE works to improve mental health services at Glasgow’s Stobhill Hospital are underway.

Main contractor BAM Construction, in partnership with hub West Scotland, on behalf of NHSGCC, is on site with the £11 million project, which will see the delivery of new acute mental health wards dedicated to adult in-patient care as well as functional health issues.

Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd is providing a full turnkey mechanical and electrical services package, from digital engineering through to the installation consisting of all plumbing, heating, ventilation and sprinklers as well as lighting, fire, security, data and power systems.

The firm will also utilise a prefabricated solution to create corridor and plant room service modules.

John Gallacher, MD of Arc-Tech said, “Arc-Tech are delighted to be involved in the Stobhill Hospital contract alongside BAM Construction and hub West Scotland. We are no strangers to the health sector and will ensure that we are respectful to the operational environment of the hospital itself as well as maintaining our trademark levels of workmanship and customer service.”

As a result of the contract, BAM Construction has donated two Portakabins to the Springburn Park Men’s Shed, a charity that supports and resources for men of all ages suffering from depression and loneliness. Arc-Tech provided electrical services to help provide power.

John added, “It is important to give back to community and charity organisations. The Springburn Park Men’s Shed is a fantastic initiative and we more than happy to provide our support.”
