Contractor named for Aberdeen mortuary project

Posted on by in Weekly News

Kier has been appointed by Aberdeen City Council and NHS Grampian to deliver the new £30M Aberdeen Integrated Mortuary at the Foresterhill Health Camp.

The Council said the mortuary will improve dignity for the deceased and provide an enhanced environment for the bereaved and staff.

The new two-storey all-electric building will provide family consultation and private areas; post-mortem rooms; body storage; meeting rooms; an office for Police Scotland and a teaching and museum area. There will also be X-ray and CT scanner capabilities.

Phil McDowell, Regional Director at Kier Construction North & Scotland, said: “We are working closely with Aberdeen City Council and NHS Grampian to provide this much-needed facility for the community. It is important that in such difficult times, those that have lost a loved one have access to the best local amenities they deserve.”

Aberdeen City Council Convener of Communities, Housing and Public Protection, Miranda Radley said: “It is good to see the collaboration between many organisations with a building that is fit for purpose, works for staff, and improves educational facilities.

“We welcome the contribution from the Scottish Government toward the project as being an innovative pathology learning facility in Scotland.”

The project is due to be completed in Spring 2024.
