NG Bailey has been awarded a mechanical, electrical and plumbing installations (MEP) contract by Kier Regional Building for a new eye care centre at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Clydebank, Scotland.
Under the deal, worth £2.9 million, the company will supply on-site support for the development. It will be carrying work out across a range of areas including lighting power, security alarm systems, domestic hot and cold water, along with ventilation and heating.
This project is the first phase in a broader expansion plan for the hospital to increase services for 'in-demand' specialities particularly ophthalmology, orthopaedic, diagnostic and general surgery services.
NHS Golden Jubilee's Eye Centre will be made up of six theatres and an integrated outpatient department. Work is due to be completed by summer 2020 and at full capacity the centre will be able to perform 21,000 cataract procedures a year.
Chris Catterick, operations director at NG Bailey, said: "As this is an operational hospital, our main priority is ensuring that our work causes as little disruption as possible to the day-to-day activities and maintaining the utmost level of health and safety at all times to ensure the wellbeing of patients on site."
Gary Wintersgill, managing director, Kier Regional Building Scotland, said: "The construction of NHS Golden Jubilee's Eye Centre is progressing well and complements the strong portfolio of healthcare projects that we are delivering throughout the country.
"As well as providing new facilities for thousands of patients at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, Kier, supported by our supply chain partners such as NG Bailey, is creating a range of valuable employment and learning opportunities throughout this project for local residents of Clydebank and the surrounding areas to benefit from for years to come."
