Great Ormond St. Hospital

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+ frameworks.

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.
