Annandale Design has been appointed by BAM Nuttall to complete work at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital’s new state of the art Imaging Centre of Excellence (ICE) in Glasgow. ICE, supported by £16m of UK Government funding through the Medical Research Council as part of the Glasgow & Clyde Valley City Deal, will provide clinical research facilities, which will be unique in the UK and create more than 200 new jobs for local people.
Annandale Design has been selected to design, manufacture and install glass balustrades to the new centre’s core stairway, as well as work on all secondary metalwork throughout the centre. Additionally, work will be carried out to manufacture and install a number of access ladders to the roof and plant areas.
The centre is expected to be complete by the end of 2016, with an independent analysis of the ICE’s economic impact concluding that the gross value added to the local economy over the next decade is likely to total around £65m.
This latest appointment comes after Annandale Design has recently completed a substantial metalwork package at the new £53m Kilmarnock College Campus in Ayrshire.
