Clearing and demolition were carried out by the firm in December 2022 and are now complete, making way for the new hospice. 

The breaking ground ceremony included representatives from McLaughlin & Harvey, NHS Ayrshire & Arran, and the three local authorities. 

Ayrshire Hospice CEO Tracy Flynn led the ceremony. 

The site is set to re-open in Summer 2024

“McLaughlin & Harvey is delighted to have marked the first official milestone of our Ayrshire Hospice project,” said John McClintock, McLaughlin & Harvey’s operations director – healthcare. 

“We bring with us a wealth of previous healthcare experience, and look forward to undertaking the substructure and structural works on this meaningful project in the coming weeks.”
