Every journey begins with a single step, a great idea and a touch of innovation.
An idea is only an idea, becoming something concrete when a great team takes it forward. Rhona Baillie, CEO of The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice, has such a team.
Rhona, the board of trustees, staff and volunteers always put patients and families first and have a passion for the great city of Glasgow and its people.
This passion and the input of external stakeholders, including an outstanding design team, has ensured the people of Glasgow will get the 21st-century facility they deserve.
From the outset Rhona has made sure she has built a team of experts who shared her vision and values for the new building.
With Glasgow’s new hospice looking after young people from the age of 16, the creation of this state-of-the art building, to be located in Bellahouston Park, has been a real team effort.
Thanks to the following dedicated people and companies, our new hospice will be a worthy addition to Glasgow’s healthcare architecture and a place of committed compassionate care for patients and their families.
Ryder Architecture under the guidance of director, professor Gordon Murray and architectural director Alastair Forbes, has carried forward the early work undertaken by Nord, developing the design and planning of the project
Burns Design, headed up by director Ronnie Burns and designer/director Clare McAllister are in charge of the look and feel of the building's interiors.
AECOM, with the help of director of cost management Robert Rankin is overseeing the cost of the build and construction.
Turner & Townsend, under the guidance of director Fraser McAlister and associate director Jim McKinstry is delivering construction management advice.
Fairhursts, with the help of Alasdair Guthrie are looking after our health and safety planning.
Thanks to all the people who are helping The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice deliver Glasgow's new hospice.
