The hospital presents a strong and unique presence responding to the characteristics and the vernacular of the region, creating a welcoming environment and a distinct sense of place.

The design has been considered holistically, developing the form and massing as a direct expression of the function of the facilities while integrating these into a whole campus development.

The three primary elements of the campus; the diagnostic and treatment bar, the inpatient pavilions and the women’s and children’s hospital are individually expressed to create a vibrant but ordered composition.

The high quality palette of materials is designed to provide a richness of texture across the three components and convey the qualities of longevity, solidity and timelessness in a modern and contemporary vernacular.

Testimonials

“Working with a large number of specialist clinical and support service workstreams was a challenging remit... [Ryder] were effective at communicating with clinicians and management who are not normally involved in the building design processes and helped them discuss and consider their requirement in a form that could be translated into design iterations. Their professional and enthusiastic manner was appreciated by operation staff who needed led through the process.”Stephen Howie, Project Manager, NHS Dumfries and Galloway
““We’ve got a great relationship with Ryder, always very pleased ... I kind of move round from one project to the next, and there will come a point when it will be time for me to move on again. If another project came up and Ryder were involved with it, I’d have significant confidence in that.””Dennis O’Keeffe, Project Director, NHS Dumfries and Galloway
