Northern Irish firm Graham Construction has won a £134million contract to build new facilities for NHS Grampian at Foresterhill Health Campus in Aberdeen.

It the largest project to be procured through the Health Facilities Scotland Framework to date.

Graham, which has its headquarters in Hillsborough, County Down, will start work on the new Baird Family Hospital (BFH) and Anchor Centre in mid-2018. It expects to complete the project in 2010.

Gary Holmes, regional director for the company, 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.”

NHS Grampian project director Jackie Bremner added: “This is a very exciting milestone in the development of these important new developments,

“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.”

BFH has been named in recognition of the contribution made to health by the Baird family over many years in Aberdeen and throughout Scotland.

Sir Dugald Baird and his wife, Lady Matilda Deans Baird, both doctors, established the first free family planning clinic in Aberdeen.

Two of their children, Joyce and David, also went on to make major contributions to healthcare in the areas of diabetes and gynaecology.

The new hospital bearing the family name will bring together all services at the existing Aberdeen Maternity Hospital and breast and gynaecology services from Aberdeen Royal Infirmary (ARI).

It will also have a corridor link to both the Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, allowing new born babies to be transferred for surgery, and ARI.

The new Anchor Centre will be home to day-patient and out-patient oncology and haematology services currently located in ARI and providing care for patients throughout the north-east, as well as in Orkney and Shetland.

Graham, whose roots can be traced back at least to the mid-to-late 18th Century, is a privately-owned company operating in the construction, asset management and project investment sectors.

Today, it turns over more than £500million a year and employs in excess of 1,600 people in operations spanning both sides of the Irish border, as well as Scotland and England.
