Planning green light for community hospital in Aviemore

We are delighted that the Badenoch and Strathspey Community Hospital project in Aviemore has been granted planning permission. NHS Highland’s new £15 m scheme was unanimously approved by the Cairngorms National Park Authority planning committee.

Located on a new site at Aviemore Technology Park, the development will include a GP practice, dental services, an urgent care centre, outpatient department, inpatient ward, community health and care departments in addition to a mortuary. The new facilities will replace hospitals in Kingussie and Grantown on Spey, both of which are scheduled for closure upon the completion of the Badenoch and Strathspey Community Hospital.

Our team in Scotland are providing civil and structural engineering services for the project, along with specialist pre-planning support covering transportation, geo-environmental, acoustics, ecology and hydrology disciplines. We are delivering the project for NHS Highland and hub North Scotland, in partnership with project manager Faithful & Gould, architects Oberlanders and Rural Design, landscape architect Wardell Armstrong, building services designer Rybka and tier 1 contractor Balfour Beatty.

Alun Rae, Director of Structures in Scotland, commented; “We are delighted to see Badenoch and Strathspey Community Hospital secure planning permission. The excellent facilities offered by the new development will replace two older hospitals, enhancing health and social care provision across the local community.”
