WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff held a key role on the £843 million South Glasgow University Hospital which officially opened on the 3rd of July.

The global consultancy has been involved in the project since being appointed by main contractor Brookfield Multiplex in 2009.

The project, managed and technically led from Glasgow, involved the provision of civil & structural engineering, fire engineering, sustainability and geo-environmental services, with a workforce of 100 working across 13 different locations to deliver the world-class facility on time and on budget.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff held Director Pete Dunbar said:

“This is a momentous milestone on our incredible journey to delivering the structural and civil design of the largest ever building in Scotland and one of the largest reinforced concrete frames ever built in Europe”

“Ambitious environmental targets were set and we implemented innovative solutions to rise to the challenge. The design of the building has been optimised to ensure its fabric is of a high standard and low-energy building services are used”

“We are immensely proud to have played a part in the creation of such an iconic structure and help deliver one of the most advanced adult acute hospitals in the UK for the benefit of people across Scotland.”
