Laing O’Rourke is currently undergoing the modernisation and extension of Gartnavel General Hospital in Glasgow, to deliver an estate with the needs of patients, public and staff at its heart.

Working closely with existing construction partners, local joint health and local authority planning groups, and service user representatives, it will be delivering refurbishment and new build works within a live, constrained site and will respond to the challenge through a fully collaborative approach with key stakeholders at all stages of the development.

Offsite manufacturing and onsite assembly capability will prove invaluable for delivering significant parts of the building within the limitations of the site, including the frame, envelope and mechanical and electrical systems.

Extensive user group meetings have been held to agree on the best layout and mix between refurbishment and new build. Several site visits to the new Queen Elizabeth University Hospital have proved beneficial in informing elements of the departmental and room design. Laing O’Rourke has carried out extensive surveys of the existing building including dimensional, mechanical and electrical, topographical and utilities in order to best inform the mechanical and electrical high level design and layouts going forward.

As part of the project to date, Laing O’Rourke has carried out a number of Work Task Orders linked to the Core Scheme in parallel with progression of the pre construction phase of the overall works programme.

The framework Principal Supply Chain Partner appointment of Laing O’Rourke and its team has enabled early engagement and full buy-in from the whole project team in order to fully realise the client’s needs.
