The new East Lothian Community Hospital in Haddington has now achieved completion after the latest phase of the project was handed over to NHS Lothian and the East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership. The £69m East Lothian Community Hospital is the largest Hub project in Scotland and has been delivered in stages. The latest phase of car park and landscaping completes the development, following a successful handover of the main building in 2019 and the Outpatients Department in 2018.
Hub South East began its involvement in the redevelopment of the old Roodlands Hospital site in East Lothian in 2012. The project was delivered on time and on budget and has already received industry recognition with shortlists in the Scottish Property Awards and scooping a silver Best Healthcare project award at 2018’s International Partnerships Awards.
Construction has now begun on West Lothian Council's largest investment in education - the £60.7m Winchburgh Schools development. We marked the start of construction on site recently for the new Sinclair Academy & Holy Family Primary, welcoming Archbishop Leo Cushley and Council officials to site. Read more about the project.
