This project – funded by a donation of £10million from The Wood Foundation – will see the development of a multi-storey car park for patients and visitors. The appointment was made through Frameworks Scotland 2.

Gary Mortimer, General Manager Estates & Facilities, NHS Grampian said “We are pleased to be working with Balfour Beatty on this project. Some of the preliminary enabling work for this development is already underway. Pending a successful planning application, we hope work will start in 2016. We are obviously indebted to The Wood Foundation for their generous donation. It will make a multi storey car park a reality without diverting NHS funding from frontline care”.

George Hood, Managing Director, Balfour Beatty – North Scotland said: “The new multi-storey car park will create much-needed additional spaces, and by working with NHS Grampian at this early stage, it will allow all of the parties involved in this significant project to develop plans and ideas on how best to deliver it for the benefit of visitors and patients alike.”

Sir Ian Wood, Chairman of The Wood Foundation commented: “This is excellent news – the project is progressing to schedule and we very much hope that the plans will gain swift approval to maintain this momentum and provide the badly needed additional patient and visitor parking as early as possible.”
