Projects

GHAT works closely with NHSG on new capital build projects and the refurbishment of existing NHSG buildings across the North East of Scotland, Orkney and Shetland.

GHAT works hand-in-hand with NHSG to commission local and national artists to work with staff and project teams to design environments that are both relevant and sympathetic to the context of each area, its users and day to day function. This can range from a very practical form of advising on colour selection or rethinking at the wayfinding as a means of identifying a ward or clinic, through to developing an arts strategy for an entire hospital. The commissions can include site-specific sculptures, bespoke furniture, or working directly with project architects on screening or cladding solutions required by NHSG safety and privacy policies.
