An artist’s impression of how the North East Health Centre will look
BAM Construction has won a £35m contract to build Scotland’s biggest health centre in Parkhead, Glasgow.
North East Health Centre, located on Salamanca Street, will be delivered under a design and build contract for NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and Glasgow Health & Social Care Partnership. BAM was appointed by private development company Hub West Scotland, which works in partnership with the public sector.
The three-storey, 10,000m2 building will accommodate 900 staff and bring together community health services currently located at nine different sites.
The hub will provide GP surgeries, a pharmacy, specialist children’s services, district nursing, health visitors, social work services, older people’s mental health services, learning disability services, sexual health services; addiction services, meeting rooms and a café.
Designed by Hoskins Architects, work will commence on site in summer 2020 and will be delivered in phases with a scheduled for completion in early 2025.
Bruce Dickson, regional director, BAM Construction, said: “We are delighted to be part of the team delivering this visionary health hub. This is a model example of the future provision of health services moving away from a hospital setting to a community-based location which is readily accessible with good transport links.”
