Ryder and NBBJ bag £200m Dumfries and Galloway hospital

  • Comment

AJ100 practices Ryder and NBBJ have been appointed to design the new £200 million Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary in southern Scotland

The 60,000m² scheme will be built on a greenfield site on the outskirts of Dumfries and has been designed to ‘reflect the rural setting’.  

The hospital will include 340 beds, a day case and inpatient surgical ward, an emergency centre and specialist oncology, maternity and paediatric facilities.

The new building is expected to complete in 2017.

The architect’s view

The building form and materials have been developed to reflect the rural setting, and to optimise views and natural daylight.

The external realm, including extensive landscaped gardens, gives clarity to the visitor, provides an attractive setting for staff to work in, and delivers a healing, therapeutic environment for patients.

The interior design strategy continues this theme by defining and unifying a hierarchy of spaces, each with their own needs, and achieves clear and intuitive wayfinding throughout the building.
