RYDER Architecture has been appointed by the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice to implement the detailed design and delivery phase of its new building in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, on land gifted to the hospice by Glasgow City Council.
Ryder will build on work undertaken by NORD. After 18 months of fundraising by the hospice, enabling works are now underway, with the project expected to start on site in June.
Alastair Forbes, project lead from Ryder, said: “I am delighted to be part of this special project again following my involvement from project inception at NORD.
“We are very excited about the opportunity of developing the innovative design, based on the Sengetun model, that supports the high quality end-of-life care that is firmly patient and family-focused.”
The new 5,840-square metre state-of-the-art hospice facility will provide a 16-bed in-patient unit along with associated support and family spaces, a young adult unit including two bedrooms in the in-patient unit, a hydrotherapy pool, a day and outpatient service, an education area and administration and clinical offices.
The £21m project is being fundraised by supporters.
The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice chief executive, Rhona Baillie, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have appointed Ryder Architecture and are looking forward to working with Alastair Forbes to start the build in June.
“So far, we have raised more than £16.5 million with £4.5 million to go – 2016 promises to be a very exciting year for us as we lay the first bricks for the new hospice.”
