Emergency Care Centre, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary

The Emergency Care Centre Project was the construction of a 10-storey building in the middle of the largest teaching hospital campus in Europe. 

The Emergency Care project was constructed whilst surrounded on all sides by an existing A&E department, a children’s hospital and a variety of other clinical facilities (as well as an operational Helipad) making this project one of the most logistically challenging Alandale Northern has been involved with.

The Centre (now officially named the Matthew Hay Building) has a gross internal floor area of 35,000m2 spread over the buildings floor levels.

The care centre offers a streamlined emergency service, with minor injury clinic and G-Med out-of-hours service based there.
