Galliford Try has won two contracts as part of the first phase of the £41.8m redevelopment of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital.

The housebuilding and construction group said its Scottish business, Morrison Construction, has been appointed preferred phase one contractor by hub South East Scotland on behalf of NHS Lothian for the first phase of the redevelopment.

In addition, Galliford Try’s facilities management business was made preferred bidder to provide ongoing hard facilities maintenance and lifecycle management in a contract worth about £18m over the 25 year concession period.

Morrison will build a state-of-the-art mental health facility on the west edge of the existing campus in Morningside, Edinburgh. When operational the facility will provide services for the adult acute mental health inpatient service, intensive psychiatric care, national brain injury unit, mental health rehabilitation and older people’s mental health assessment and treatment services.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “This appointment demonstrates the strength of our business across our construction, facilities management and investments teams and we look forward to working with hub and NHS Lothian to create the top class facilities the local public deserve.”
