The Murray Royal Hospital development had an objective to deliver new, fit for purpose, mental health facilities to Perth and to Scotland in general. The development is taking place on the site of the existing facility which is kept live during the construction of the new facility; significantly adding to the logistical complexity of the project.

Our team undertook a 70,000m3 bulk earthworks excavation, followed by lime stabilisation underneath the building footprint. Once completed our team installed site drainage and underground services. In addition to this the contract required the installation of drainage up to 7m deep, ground floor slabs of approx 32500m2, upper floors on metal decking of approx 10000m2 and reinforced concrete walls ranging from 1.2m to 7m high.

Road works including car parks and footpath construction were also managed. Finally, all external works, including preparatory work for soft landscaping and all hard landscaping fell under our remit.
