Leeds Teaching Hospitals

WGI were appointed as the single source masterplanning architect on the Trust's consultant framework in 2009. WGI were then appointed in 2012 through the framework to work on the masterplan for the Leeds General Infirmary site and became part of a larger project team to undertake a high level strategic studies for the site.

Working closely with the Trust the team provided an integrated approach to evaluating the existing site and individual buildings, followed by design options which considered the various permutations for both the Trust's accommodation requirements and the residual developable land. The proposals included the relocation of a number of the hospital departments in both new and existing buildings, whilst embracing the significant challenges of heritage buildings across the site.

The success of the exercise was due to having the appropriate skills across the team, and a collaborative and responsive approach between the team and the Trust.
