High-profile new London practice Make is preparing to launch itself into the healthcare market.
The office - set up by ex-Foster partner Ken Shuttleworth - is part of a consortium bidding to build a new £275 million hospital for the Forth Valley NHS Trust in Glasgow.
The move, which sees the firm allied with contractor Skanska, pits it against Keppie, a practice with much greater healthcare credentials.
It is a brave move for Shuttleworth, given the lack of hospital design experience in either Make or Foster and Partners, where a vast majority of the staff came from.
The office is, however, already working in Scotland on a massive regeneration scheme at Granton Harbour, Edinburgh. by Ed Dorrell
