Ayrshire Hospice appoints Principal Supply Chain Partner

Date Posted 07.09.22

Ayrshire Hospice has appointed McLaughlin & Harvey as their Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP) for their capital build project.

The project will see the traditional home of the Hospice at Racecourse Road be redeveloped over the next two years.

Works include the demolition and refurbishment of some of the existing buildings. As well as the construction of new extensions forming a state-of-the-art new build In-Patient Unit (IPU) and a modern Hub building providing connectivity through the ‘heart of the Hospice’.

Before works began, the existing facilities have been vacated. Enabling the demolition and new construction works to progress without any adverse impact on the Hospice patients and staff.

The IPU extension bends towards the south-east so as to maximise the south-facing number of rooms. As well as also allowing for a larger garden to the north-east.

The Hub, located at the main entrance, functions as the social heart of the hospice hosting a series of public and user friendly functional areas such as the entrance lobby and reception, a small Hospice shop, and a café with public access and opening onto the new courtyard.

A secondary lounge space for staff is also housed within the Hub, along with a staff library and training suite, and a large flexible area that can be adapted into a boardroom, a celebration space or a lecture suite.

This project was also delivered as part of the Frameworks Scotland 3 (FS3); a framework managed by Health Facilities Scotland, a service under NHS National Services Scotland.

We are delighted to have been appointed as main contractor for this meaningful project for Ayrshire Hospice. To be awarded this project is a testament to our reputation and experience in the healthcare sector for delivering quality builds. This is our first project under Frameworks Scotland 3; a framework managed by Health Facilities Scotland, a service under NHS National Services Scotland. We look forward to collaborating with Ayrshire Hospice and starting work on-site next year.

This is a flagship project as the Ayrshire Hospice is the first non-NHS organisation to procure a contractor through the ‘Frameworks Scotland 3’ model. This extremely robust selection process has brought us an experienced Tier 1 Principal Contractor who will carry out a sympathetic restoration of our listed buildings while delivering the highest standards of construction for the new-build elements.

Project Manager for Ayrshire Hospice Capital Build 

We are delighted to partner with McLaughlin & Harvey and excited about our plans and vision for the Ayrshire Hospice as a centre of excellence for palliative and end of life care. This becoming a reality through the redevelopment is very important for our teams and our community. I would also like to take this opportunity to reiterate how grateful the Hospice is for the community’s response towards our ongoing capital fundraising campaign. It is a privilege to have support from the people of Ayrshire & Arran as we undertake this milestone project for the Ayrshire Hospice.
