Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust

St Thomas’ Hospital

The full refurbishment of the A&E department with minimum impact on nursing operations and patients. This construction project covers the multi phased refurbishment and remodelling of the Accident and Emergency department at St Thomas’s Hospital.

Phases one to three have now been successfully completed and are back in use by the trust and we are currently delivering the first areas of phase four.

Quality through Design:
The works include the full strip out and demolition of the existing internal arrangements and then revised space planning to accord with an updated design concept that will maximise the potential for the department to deal with the increased number of cases that they are now seeing. New mechanical and electrical installations are being undertaken throughout and the continuing challenges in integrating these with the existing hospital infrastructure are being met. A high standard of internal finishes is being achieved throughout the department and a new modular extension has been installed above the A&E department as a part of the project to create additional office space.

Collaborative Working:
Works have been carried out with adjacent areas all remaining in full use and the associated forward planning and logistical approach to achieve this has been a crucial part of the
projects success.
