New Glasgow Southern General Hospital
New Glasgow Southern General Hospital / Mugdock DMA Program – Glasgow
  • Location: Glashow
  • Duration: 1.5 Year
  • Client: Scottish Water
  • Value: 540k


NHS – Greater Glasgow & Clyde initially approached Scottish Water regarding the upgrade of the water network to mitigate the impact of their development of the New Glasgow Southern General. The works were incorporated within the Murdock DMA rehabilitation program. The overall scope of the program was approximately 60k of rehabilitation and new main installation of 63mm to 450mm using pipe bursting slip lining, open cut and abandonment, we also had to take the clean water with us due to the manganese in water supply which meant planning the works to the flow of the water.

  • Phase 1 – 22k (Build only)
  • Phase 2 – 18k (Build only)
  • Phase 3 – 500k (Design and Build)

We had already delivered Phase 1 & 2 which were smaller in size and less critical Phase 3 of the program was renew the aging mains and install new mains within the Murdock DMA. This was the critical final phase of works associated with the connection of the M3 and M5 trunk mains to facilitate New Glasgow Southern General Hospital which was due to open in May 2015 which was reputational and political given its cost of £842m.

The works had to be completed within a strict 6-month timescale with no room for error or float. The Planning and programming for this project was essential to allow the Design and Build process to progress without any issues, it was critical to identify the project scope which was defined via the optioneering / site investigation. This allowed the most effective and appropriate method for constructing the project to be identified.

The works were successfully delivered on time and within budget and upon completion of the project a handover meeting will be held with Scottish Water to sign off the project, which confirmed that all deliverables have been achieved and to the correct specification.
