St Thomas’ Hospital

The Evelina Children Hospital; Operating Theatre and Paediatric Recovery Ward

This demanding project had to be completed to a tight deadline as surgical operations were planned, and a series of enabling works were required to keep this project to schedule.

These included constructing a heavily reinforced slab in the middle of a harsh winter to take delivery of two modular theatres and numerous alterations to accommodation on upper floors. Building alterations were required within the basement and an extension was built in an undercroft to accommodate the new recovery ward and support areas.

Throughout the project hospital functions were maintained. The project was procured using a JCT IC 05 contract and the works on site were completed in 18 weeks. The construction costs (excluding the two modular theatres) were circa £1.5 million.
