Distinctive Curved Form at NHS Orkney

NHS Orkney Hospital & Health Care, Kirkwall

Progress continues onsite at the new NHS Orkney Hospital & Health Care facilities in Kirkwall.

The structural steelwork is now well underway on the Isle of Orkney. The hospital features a distinctive curved form providing both shelter from the sometimes extreme environment of Orkney as well as highly functional clinical accommodation.

The building is based on a two-storey, form, with low-level pitched rood and orientated on the site to provide minimum impact to its domestic neighbours. The new purpose built hospital will include Accident & Emergency, surgical theatres, day surgery and cancer & palliative care etc.
