Glasgow Hospitals Celebrate International Property Award

Design: IBI Group

18th of March 2016 – All eyes were on the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) and the Royal Hospital for Children (RHC), as they scooped the prestigious international MIPIM award for Best Healthcare Development.

The MIPIM Awards, launched in 1991 is the highlight of an annual event held in Cannes, France that brings together over 21,000 influential property players to honour the most outstanding and accomplished global projects from around the world.

The landmark £842million Glasgow Hospital designed by architects, IBI Group and constructed by Brookfield Multiplex in collaboration with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde Board, was one of four shortlisted entries that was voted for by event delegates and a judging panel made-up of prominent property professionals.

IBI Group’s Neil Murphy said: “It took a considerable time to plan, design and construct this world-class hospital, which is a beacon for wellbeing in the local community.

“For all the doctors, nurses, patients and staff, in addition to the vast design and build team that were involved in delivering the hospital, this internationally-renowned award is testament to their collaborative effort.”

Robert Calderwood, Chief Executive, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, said: “I am delighted that the design of the new QEUH and the RHC have been recognised internationally as one of the most outstanding healthcare projects across the world.

“We were a long time in the planning and construction but the results are now providing the residents of Greater Glasgow and Clyde and beyond state-of-the-art facilities at the forefront of the latest advances in healthcare.”

The iconic 14-storey, 170,000sqm hospital is amongst Europe’s largest and most advanced medical campuses and is a catalyst for wider regeneration in and around Scotland’s largest city.

The judges agreed that the hospital establishes a new benchmark for healthcare design and delivery. Set in a therapeutic set within therapeutic parklands the design uses excellent standards of natural light, space, height, materials and technology, which create a ‘hotel like’ adult acute environment and a science inspired, interactive and colourful children’s facility.

Providing 100% single adult bedrooms and virtually 100% single children’s bedrooms all with stimulating views, the hospital’s design helps improve infection control and heighten overall patient care, dignity and privacy.

Encompassing novel features such as colourful cantilevered ‘pods’ in the naturally lit atrium, a bespoke patient and visitor sanctuary, beautifully landscaped roof-top children’s play area, integrated artwork and the largest A&E in Scotland; the hospital is set to provide the best quality of care for future generations.
