Currently, more than 400 contractors and approximately 150 health professionals continue to work around the clock to set up the new NHS Louisa Jordan temporary hospital within the Scottish Exhibition Centre (SEC), Glasgow.The temporary hospital will have the capacity for 1,000 patients when fully complete. It is expected to play a crucial role in Scotland’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak.
With the focus of the construction industry on critical projects, Aggregate Industries is supplying the full concrete specification free of charge for the new temporary build. By following robust risk assessments and stringent health and safety guidelines, risk is mitigated for our colleagues and allows the materials to be delivered safely.
Ian Waddell, Regional Director of Aggregate Industries Scotland, comments: “As a business, we feel a huge appreciation for the NHS and the extraordinary work that its staff and other key workers continue to do in helping keep the nation running during this unprecedented time.
“We are therefore very proud to be able to donate concrete to the new temporary NHS Louisa Jordan hospital in Glasgow.
“Our hope is that by each playing our part in whatever way we can, whether through providing construction materials and support and expertise in the many communities we operate in, we can help make a difference at this uncertain time.”
