Brookfield scoops ВЈ550m Glasgow hospital contract

Brookfield (formerly Multiplex) looks set to have won the ВЈ550m contract to redevelop Glasgow Southern General hospital.

The Australian-owned contractor is thought to have beaten Balfour Beatty and Laing O'Rourke to the massive contract, which will see Glasgow Southern General become one of the largest acute hospitals in the UK.

The construction contract will include infrastructure, enabling, access and sewer system works.

The hospital will be rebuilt and refurbished to form the New South Glasgow Hospital.
The 1,100 bed, single room accommodation health complex will consist of an adult acute hospital, a children’s hospital and a laboratory block.

The South Glasgow Hospital project, which is forecast to cost ВЈ842m in total, will be directly financed with no private finance initiative (PFI) involvement.

The main building will be built on the site of the old Southern General.

Work is scheduled for completion in 2015.
