Miller set to start on £24m Aberdeen health facility
Hub North Scotland joint venture has reached financial close on the first project in the North hub programme, the £24m Aberdeen Community Health and Care Village.
The 65,000 sq ft complex is just one of £435m-worth of community facilities that Hub North Scotland plans to deliver over the next 10 years.
Hub North Scotland comprises Alba Community Partnerships, Scottish Futures Trust and the 18 Northern Territory partners. Alba Community Partnerships is a 50/50 joint venture between Miller Construction and Cyril Sweett Investments Ltd.
Chief executive Angus Macfarlane said: “We are delighted to have reached financial close on this significant project. This is the first DBFM (design, build, finance and maintain) contract to be let in Scotland through the hub programme and we look forward to delivering it. NHS Grampian will benefit from three storeys of clinical and administrative space which will provide improved health care for the people of Aberdeen and across Grampian.
Located on Aberdeen’s Frederick Street, the Health Village is a community day hospital without beds. The diagnostic and treatment centre will operate between 8am and 8pm Monday to Friday.
The main contractor for the build is Miller Construction and the on-going facilities management will be provided by Miller Asset 24. Work is anticipated to start shortly, with completion towards the end of 2013.
In addition to the Health Village, a new 185-space multi-storey car park is also being built. The car park will be owned and operated by Aberdeen City Council and is scheduled to open later this year.
