Pacific Building are about to start work on a project to deliver a new hospital for leading healthcare provider Cosmedicare.
The company will convert the existing office premises that housed various companies over a period of years into St Ellen’s Hospital in Livingston’s Kirkton Campus in West Lothian.
Designed by Cormack Gracie architects, the 12,000 sq ft building will operate as a day-case facility and will work with both the NHS and the private sector to deliver the highest standards of medical practice with enhanced technology.
Providing operating theatres, consultation and recovery rooms, the work at St Ellen’s involves a fit-out of the existing shell to Health Improvement Scotland standards.
This will include specialist building services covering electrical upgrades, provision of ventilation systems and lighting.
All clinical areas will be serviced using uninterrupted power supply networks and back-up generator systems.
The clinical areas will also use bioclad partitions, specialist flooring and bio-guard suspended ceilings providing anti-microbial protection.
Non-clinical space will use NHS-compliant washable paint.
Pacific MD Gerard McMahon said,: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with the clinical team on St Ellen’s and look forward to adding another successful project to our healthcare portfolio.”
The 14-week programme is scheduled to run until handover to the clients in July, 2021,
Cosmedicare founder and Managing Director Gill Baird, who currently runs the business from the Gyle in Edinburgh, said: “This heralds a new era of healthcare provision. We work with the top surgeons and consultants in the private sector and NHS to deliver the highest standards of medical practice with enhanced technology.”
