Project Information
Project name: UK: Orkney Balfour hospital project
Project description:

Development of Balfour hospital and Kirkwall dental centre in Orkney. This project is to be pursued as a Non-Profit Distributing project.

The winning bidder will design, build, finance and maintain a new hospital on a site in Orkney with an estimated total value of £180-£220m, over 25 years.

Robertson and the Canmore Partnership are now the two teams left in the running for the £180-£220m scheme to design, build, finance and maintain a new hospital on a site in Orkney.

The announcement means that a Farrans/Equitix joint venture has been dropped from the process, after being shortlisted in October last year.

A preferred bidder for the deal is scheduled to be announced in October this year, with construction due to begin in late spring 2016 in time for the hospital to open in the summer of 2018.
