Images of Edinburgh’s new children’s hospital have been released, as officials said the project had reached a major milestone.
Integrated Health Solutions Lothian were announced as the preferred bidder to design, build and maintain the new Royal Hospital for Sick Children and Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary site.
Work on the construction is expected to start in the autumn, with the hospital opening to patients in the summer of 2017.
Susan Goldsmith, director of finance for NHS Lothian, said: “The selection of a preferred bidder follows an extensive and thorough evaluation process.
“This announcement marks a major milestone in what is an extremely exciting project.”
