Hardies appointed to £7m nursing home development in Livingston
Hardies Property & Construction Consultants has been appointed to a £7 million 60-bedroom nursing home development on a brownfield site in Livingston for Randolph Hill Nursing Homes Group.
The firm will provide project management, quantity surveying and principal designer services to the project.
Work on the new home, being built on the site of the former Livingston Development Corporation site, will begin on November 25 and is expected to be completed by February 2021.
Hardies partner Murray Warner said: “We are delighted to secure the appointment to this prestigious project, with work due to begin at the start of next month and scheduled for completion by February 2021.
“The high-quality development will feature a two-storey timber frame construction with a mix of stone, render and timber cladding to external walls and a mix of pitched and flat roof technologies with solar panels on the pitched areas.”
Peter McCormick, managing director of Randolph Hill Nursing Homes Group, added: “Our investment in this new Livingston site will help fill a gap in the current care home offering in West Lothian and bring new jobs into the local community.”
In addition to Hardies, the design team on the project comprises Gilberts as architects and Harley Haddow as M&E engineer and structural & civil engineer with Muir Construction appointed as contractor following a competitive tender process.
