BAM Construction lands £35m Glasgow health centre contract

BAM Construction has been appointed by hub west Scotland to build Scotland’s biggest health centre in Parkhead, Glasgow.

The £35 million design and build contract will feature a three-storey building.

North East Health Centre will be delivered on behalf of NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Glasgow Health & Social Care Partnership. The facility will accommodate 900 staff and bring together a number of community health services currently located at nine different sites.

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 start on site next summer and will be delivered in phases with a scheduled completion date of early 2025.

Iain Marley, chief executive of hub West Scotland added, “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with BAM Construction and are confident that this very important project will build on past successes. That confidence comes from the quality of collaboration on previous projects and BAM’s experience in the health sector.”

BAM Construction is currently working on delivering Stobhill Hospital’s mental health campus and Greenock Health Centre.
