Contract Type Design and Build
The Faithlie Dental Centre became one of the first NHS Grampian health projects delivered through hub North Scotland when it was handed over to the organisation in January 2014.
The development, located on the Fraserburgh Hospital site in Aberdeenshire, is unique in that it provides NHS and private dentistry services as well as a specialist service for children and patients with learning disabilities. Serving the people of Fraserburgh and the surrounding area, the facility has been delivered in response to an increase in demand for dental services within the area.
The Faithlie Dental Centre is part of our pledge to provide dental services to the population of Grampian. This facility offers a wider range of services and will deliver additional access to the people of Fraserburgh and the surrounding area.Brian Dawson
This move will service the needs of the more vulnerable groups in the area and the provision of specialist services, such as anxiety management initially, will help develop Faithlie as a local centre of excellence in dental specialties. This will also reduce the need for patients to travel to Aberdeen for treatment and advice.

The contemporary 495 sq metre building is home to five separate dental suites and incorporates 15 rooms in total. A number of cutting edge photovoltaic panels were included in the design and are being used to generate electricity to power the building. The facility also includes a range of state-of-the-art X-ray equipment meaning that visitors can have their full dental needs met within the centre, eliminating the need to travel to Aberdeen and further afield for treatment.
Built by Morrison Construction in partnership with hub North Scotland and financed through NHS Grampian capital funding, the entire project, with the exception of the specialist dental fit out, was completed using the contractor's local supply chain partners.← back to projects
