The new Houldsworth Health Centre Centre reflects the next generation of local integrated healthcare delivery in Scotland. GRAHAM delivered the project for hub South West, the public-private partnership set up in 2012 to finance and build community projects in Scotland’s south west area, including Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway.

Cost savings and speed of delivery were additional benefits of the delivery model for the works programme. With the support of, and collaboration between, hub South West Scotland, NHS Lanarkshire and the Scottish government, the three individual health centres were grouped together into one revenue-financed hub Scotland project. This integration and collaboration also allowed construction to start much earlier than would have been possible if the client had sought a traditional route for delivery of the programme.
