Dumfries & Galloway Hospital Opens Its Doors

12th December 2017 – The new £212m Dumfries and Galloway Hospital has officially opened its doors after transferring staff and patients from their old site across the weekend.

Bennett Architectural teamed up once again with Laing O’Rourke on the construction of the 344-bed new build facility.

Off-site construction method DfMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) was used to pre-install windows into high specification concrete panels saving on-site labour cost at Laing O’Rourke’s Explore Industrial Park in Worksop.

Lionel Grant, Managing Director at Bennett Architectural commented,
“We were delighted to support the building of this state of the art new hospital for NHS Dumfries and Galloway.

“Working with Laing O’Rourke we used DfMA, which we have previously used on two hospital projects in Cumbria and North Staffordshire. With less on-site installation work this also lowers the carbon emissions for the project as a whole; which is vitally important.”

Health Secretary Shona Robison added,
“The new hospital will transform the way services are provided to local patients in Dumfries and Galloway and I am very much looking forward to seeing the new facility.”
