QUEEN ELIZABETH UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, GLASGOW
Creating one of the UK’s largest acute healthcare facilities
Glasgow’s 14-storey Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) is home to one of the largest adult acute hospitals in the UK. With 1,109 beds, the new build unit is a flagship facility with a focus on individual patient wellbeing that believes its grand-scale setting and where patients have their own single, en-suite room with a view.
An Energy and Resource Efficient Facility
Despite covering some 175,000m2 including the children’s hospital, the facility is also a model of energy and resource efficiency. The entire project team worked from the outset of the scheme to create a low carbon structure that will create significant cost and energy savings over its whole-lifecycle.
QEUH’s acute facility is part of a wider healthcare hub that includes a children’s hospital of 256 beds, paediatric and adult A&E departments, a maternity hospital and laboratory services. Together with the existing facilities it forms QEUH – the UK’s largest hospital campus. We provided services across the superstructure of the campus, as well as for each individual unit.
