As the new hospital is a NPD project it was not anticipated that a Clerk of Works was required. However, following the recent publication of the Report of the Independent Inquiry into the Construction of Edinburgh Schools, the project team has determined that a Clerk of Works is now an essential requirement. With building work due to commence in June, a Clerk of Works is required to be in place urgently.
