Great Ormond Street Hospital is undergoing a
major redevelopment: the masterplan will take around 20 years to
complete. WGI have been working on the complex since 2008.
WGI were appointed for the enabling works
related to the realisation of the masterplan. To date, around 60
departments, such as the clinical research facilities, acute
patient treatment areas, theatres including a hybrid theatre, wards
and office areas have been relocated.
WGI have continued to work on the service
upgrade projects under the ProCure21 and the ProCure21+
Works vary considerably in size - from a large
combined NICU/PICU, to 25-30 bed inpatient wards and relocating
small clusters of rooms. Working on a congested site, with
buildings of various ages, build and condition, and within a live
hospital environment, presents challenging conditions at all
stages. WGI's close work with the design team, Trust project
managers and user groups - as well as experience and familiarity of
the estate - enables working efficiencies and technical
enhancements, while meeting the Trust's timescales.
The latest projects consist of the reorganisation of the main
entrance, including the outpatient department, a hybrid theatre and
a private patient unit.
