Balfour Beatty were delighted to receive the Outstanding Achievement in Partnership award at the Scottish Property Awards.

During a virtual ceremony, Principal Contractor Balfour Beatty, NHS Scotland and Principal Supply Chain Partners (PSCPs); Graham Construction, Kier Construction, RMF Health and Keppie Design jointly received the award for the Louisa Jordan field hospital project in Glasgow.

The project consisted of converting 24,000mof an exhibition conference centre space into a functional hospital which was urgently needed to support the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic.

Balfour Beatty mobilised a delivery team in just 24 hours with a delivery phase of three weeks involving 81 employees, from Regional Scotland & Ireland and Balfour Beatty Kilpatrick (BBK) and 550 supply chain members. Balfour Beatty and partners designed, procured, constructed and commissioned the site in 20 days. The hospital provided 1036 patient beds, including 90 high dependency units. Balfour Beatty also installed additional external temporary accommodation connected to the main building via tented walkways, ambulance bays and a mortuary.

Winning the Outstanding Achievement in Partnership award is a great achievement and recognises the huge amount of hard work and commitment of the teams who made this possible.
