Redevelopment of Southern General Hospital and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children Avanti Architects was appointed in 2005 as architectural Technical Advisor to the Glasgow and Clyde Health Board to prepare a design brief, masterplan and exemplar design for the £600m redevelopment and expansion of a major teaching hospital and a children’s hospital on a 29 hectare site in south Glasgow as part of the Glasgow-wide rationalisation of acute services. The plan includes a detailed phasing strategy for the works to ensure that the existing services on the site can be maintained throughout the development process.

It will link into two major existing facilities on the site, the maternity and the neurosciences buildings, to form an integrated whole. The new hospital will provide 1,100 new beds in addition to 600 retained beds.
The development includes new premises for the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, which will have its own identity as a building with separate entrance facilities and multistory car park, but will be connected to the adult hospital in order to maximise flexibility of use/services. The Children’s Hospital will provide 240 new beds.
