St George's Hospital SAU, Renal Unit & Multi-faith Centre

WGI were appointed by St George's Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust to develop designs for these three facilities, with the intention of combining the SAU and Multi-Faith Centre in one building contract.

The design for the Renal Unit was first developed as two feasibility study options within the existing Grosvenor Wing, one a 28 bed facility and the other with 60 bed capacity. This has evolved to a 28 bed facility, part of the Private Patient Unit which was to be developed as the first phase of the masterplan.

The SAU is located in the St James Wing. The design consists of an eight bed assessment area, an eight bed inpatient area, clinical rooms, a minor procedures room and staff facilities. As a refurbishment the proposal includes for the infill of a courtyard and a significant reconfiguration of the services and drainage.

In order to accommodate the SAU the existing Multi-Faith Centre has been relocated into another part of the building for which WGI have designed the new facility.
