East Lothian NHS Trust appointed Galliford Try (Morrison Construction) and NORR Architects in 2012 to help the Trust develop a Masterplan for rationalisation of Mental Health services in Edinburgh over the following seven years. GT managed the complex approval and financing required for the programme, the first in Scotland to achieve financial close under the Scottish Futures Trust Design Build Finance and Maintain model.

The scheme involved the redevelopment of the Royal Edinburgh Hospital site in two` main phases. Phase 1 – the re-provision of inpatient services into a new state of the art 185-bed facility, then Phase 2, the refurb remodelling of the existing 200-year-old Grade B listed building for out-patient facilities, rehab and support services.
