Principal Supply Chain Partner for Ayrshire Hospice capital build project


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

The ambitious multi-million-pound project will see the traditional home of the Hospice at Racecourse Road in Ayr be redeveloped over the next two years with a re-opening of the site scheduled for Summer 2024.

John McClintock, McLaughlin & Harvey Operations Director – Healthcare, commented, “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.”

Julia Connelly, Ayrshire Hospice Capital Build Project Manager said, “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.”

Tracy Flynn, Chief Executive of the Ayrshire Hospice commented, “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.”
