ECG Facilities Services were delighted to be awarded the contract for the supply, installation & commissioning of a new medical pod and ventilation system within Level 6 – Main Treatment Area of the Glasgow Dental Hospital & School in Glasgow’s city centre. Due to strict and ever-changing COVID-19 legislation and government guidance, the works were temporary in nature; however, care was taken to carry out the works in as neat and unobtrusive manner as practicable. Additionally, we worked closely with the NHS Control Infection Team as all works were undertaken in careful compliance with the strict HAI-SCRIBE regulations and to SHTM03-01 standards. Particular note was taken of the sensitive nature of the Glasgow Dental Hospital & School being a “Category 2” listed building and, as such, all works were undertaken to be installed in a non-destructive and reversable manner. Even with the tough working conditions relating to undertaking this project during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, ECG’s Projects Team were able to deliver it safely and successfully on time, to specification and within budget – leaving the NHS Estates Manager delighted with the final outcome of the works.


Servicing West and Central Scotland, the Glasgow Dental Hospital and School is the premier location for specialised oral health care, education and research. The Dental Hospital operates out of 26 locations, including its City Centre offices and outreach clinics and surgeries, to service a population of over 3 million people.
