BACKGROUND

The demand for surgical facilities, fit for future generations, required the five existing 30 year-old
main hospital theatres to be upgraded.

NHS Dumfries and Galloway asked NIFES to design and manage this complex project, keeping theatre services going and adhering to a tight budget and programme.

The scrub rooms and anaesthetic rooms were also completely refurbished.
