Project summary

As part of the strategically important ‘Frameworks Scotland 2’ (FS2) framework, our Monklands Hospital redevelopment programme is helping to revolutionise patient care for the people of Airdrie. Appointed in 2013 as a Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP), we are undertaking a range of major reconfiguration and refurbishment projects at the hospital, which are replacing outdated and non-compliant clinical areas with modern, fully functional facilities that signal a new era of world-leading acute healthcare in Lanarkshire. Our work at Monklands saw the team awarded the ‘NEC Contractor of the Year Award 2016’ for collaboration.

The detail

Involving a complex 12-phase programme, our transformation of Monklands Hospital has significantly enhanced the standard of patient care delivered to a catchment population of 260,000. Phase one of the project involved the construction of a state-of-the-art 10-bed Critical Care Unit (CCU), which was handed over to NHS Lanarkshire in 2016. The core element of the overall Monklands Hospital reconfiguration features the £15m replacement and upgrade of the surgical department to provide new operating suites, including two ultra clean theatres, relatives’ area, reception and recovery area.

To transform the non-compliant theatres into a compliant facility demanded careful planning and phasing, resulting in a staged decant and refurbishment plan. We are currently completing a major Backlog Maintenance Project, encompassing Fire Safety Works for example, which is due for completion in July 2019.
