There were six finalists from all over the world and the healthcare project was pipped to the post by the EUR 600 million Gaziantep IHC PPP Project, in Turkey.

Now in its 20th year, the Partnerships Awards is the largest event recognising and rewarding the best in public private partnerships (PPP). This long-running annual event welcomes over 700 people to celebrate the industry’s achievements over the past year.

Gerry O’Brien, Interim Chief Executive at NHS Orkney, said: "For our new healthcare project to receive recognition on such an international scale and having 6 finalists in the category is a brilliant achievement for all involved in the project and for the people of Orkney".

Neil McCormick, managing director, Robertson Capital Projects, said: “The Balfour will transform healthcare for residents of Orkney and this award serves as clear recognition of the planning that has gone into ensuring the facility is truly best in class.”

The New Hospital and Healthcare Facilities NPD project in Orkney will provide a total of 49 en-suite bedrooms for inpatient, assessment, maternity and mental health needs. Clinical accommodation includes emergency, theatres, endoscopy, day surgery, cancer and palliative care, radiology, dental, ambulance, renal, mortuary, pharmacy and outpatients.

Two local GP practices will also collocate in the new building together with staff support accommodation.
