Graham Construction secures £134m build in Scotland

NHS Grampian project director Jackie Bremner shakes on the deal with Graham Construction regional director Gary Holmes

HILLSBOROUGH building firm Graham Construction has won a major £134 million contract in Scotland.

The company will develop two new health facilities for NHS Grampian in Aberdeen.

It is the largest project ever procured via the Scottish NHS Framework.

The deal is just the latest to be secured by Graham in Britain.

In October, the firm struck a deal worth £150m to provide building work to a Barnet Council in London over the next five years.

The company already has an annual turnover of around £500m and employs 1,900 people.

Its most recent annual report showed a bulging pipeline of projects with an order book of £1.1 billion (before the latest contracts were signed).

The new Baird Family Hospital will bring together all services at the existing Aberdeen Maternity Hospital and breast and gynaecology services from Aberdeen Royal Infirmary (ARI).

The new Anchor Centre will include day-patient and out-patient oncology and haematology services relocating from ARI.

Graham's regional director Gary Holmes said: “We are privileged to be working with NHS Grampian and its stakeholders in the development of the Foresterhill Health Campus and in equipping it to offer the highest quality of care to the region for years to come."

Jackie Bremner, NHS Grampian project director added: "We look forward to working with our partners at Graham Construction to create high quality modern facilities that will help enable us to deliver quality care designed for the future for the people of the north east, north of Scotland and the northern isles.”

Construction work will commence in mid-2018 with the project expected to complete in 2020.

Graham made its first foray into England in 1985 but has actually been in existence for around 200 years.

It now has 12 regional offices across Ireland and Britain.
