NEW INFECTIOUS DISEASES HOSPITAL FOR KIRKCALDY.-At a meeting of the Kirkcaldy Town Council recently the minute of Committee of the 6th inst. was read, recommending the Authority to adopt the plans for the proposed infectious diseases hospital prepared by Messrs Campbell, Douglas, & Morrison, Glasgow, which were approved by the Local Government Board, with the exception that the new hospital should accommodate ten more beds - namely, thirty-three, the total cost to be £9,200, or £277- 4s-1d. per bed, the architects coming under an obligation to forego one half of their commission if the sum estimated is exceeded, excluding, of course, any extras or other work recommended by the Authority during the erection of the hospital. Provost Hutchison moved the approval of the minutes, the motion being seconded by Councillor Orr, and unanimously agreed to. [Builder 27 February 1897 p207]
The hospital is mentioned in both Larmont Douglas Penman's and William Barclay's RIBA nomination papers but no dates are given. It seems likely that their contribution was the addition of the sanatorium in 1908, but it is possible that they were actually responsible for the main buildings, with William Barclay as assistant.
Cost of 1927 work £1,550
