Sir Robert McAlpine resumes Maggie’s Centre following Dunne collapse
Work on the new Maggie’s Centre at Forth Valley General Hospital has resumed after previous contractor Dunne Group went into administration.
Sir Robert McAlpine will complete the construction of the project which has stalled for a month following the collapse of the Dunne Group, which was carrying out the work.
The centre in the grounds of Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert had been on hold for a month because of the collapse of the Dunne Group, which was carrying out the work.
It is hoped that delays to the project will be kept to a minimum and the centre will open later this year.
A Maggie’s spokesperson said: “Maggie’s is delighted to announce that we have appointed Sir Robert McAlpine to complete work on our new Centre at the Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert, taking over from Dunne Group, who went into administration last month.
“Thanks to the swift transfer to Sir Robert McAlpine, we anticipate any delays to the completion of the project to be kept to a minimum and look forward to seeing Maggie’s Forth Valley opening its doors to welcome people with cancer, as well as their family and friends, from across the Forth Valley area later this year.”
