Keppie Design wins 284m Scottish hospital bid

NHS Forth Valley have selected the consortium led by Equion as preferred bidder for the New Acute Hospital for Forth Valley PPP project.

The 814 bed hospital will provide world class facilities, and will replace existing hospitals at Stirling and Falkirk as part of an integrated strategy for delivery of healthcare services across central Scotland.

Speaking after the announcement, Graham McCorkindale, Keppie Director responsible for the project, highlighted the collaborative working relationship with Equion, Laing O'Rourke, Serco, and the rest of the design team as a key factor in the success. 'This has been a fantastic team effort', he said, ' and we are all excited at the opportunity it provides to realise innovative ideas in relation to healthcare design.'

Keppie Chairman Peter Scott commented: 'This is a tremendous recognition of the people in the practice, especially given the quality of the competition. It enhances our considerable healthcare and PPP reputation, and allows us to continue the development of the practice throughout the UK.
