Kier Construction Scotland has been selected as a Principal Supply Chain Partner to build an elective care facility at Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Clydebank, as part of Frameworks Scotland 2.

The project is valued at £34.5m over two phases. The work involves developing a cataract surgery unit besides an additional orthopaedic and elective surgical care facility.

This contract award comes after the Scottish Government announced expansion of the Golden Jubilee and five new elective treatment centres to be built across the country to perform procedures such as hip, knees and cataracts.

These centres are expected to cut down patient waiting times and enhance patient experience.

Besides being a national resource for NHS Scotland, Golden Jubilee provides  heart and lung services at regional and national levels, and serves as centre of excellence in orthopaedics, has a major diagnostic centre and is one of the largest cataract providers in the UK.

Kier Construction Scotland is expected to commence the development work on the location by early next year. The work is expected to be completed by 2021.
