Yorkshire offsite construction specialist awarded sustainable £21m London healthcare project
Yorkshire based offsite specialist Premier Modular has been awarded a £21m contract to construct a new outpatient services building at King’s College Hospital in London.
The 3,450 sq m, four-storey scheme is Premier’s largest single healthcare project in its 65-year history.
Manufactured offsite in Brandesburton, the large-scale building will allow the trust to free up space within the main hospital to help reduce waiting times and improve the patient experience for urgent care services.
As main contractor, Premier will be leading the delivery team which includes Yorkshire based P+HS Architects. The project follows Premier’s delivery of a £10m contract for the offsite construction of a 62-bed Priority Assessment Unit at St Peter’s Hospital in Chertsey.
The new outpatient services building at King’s College Hospital will provide 48 purpose-designed consultation rooms and eight procedure rooms for a range of services.
Dan Allison, divisional director at Premier Modular, said, “The use of an offsite solution for this project will ensure faster delivery and earlier occupation, to the benefit of patient care.”
“Offsite construction is safer, quieter and cleaner than in-situ construction, which will radically reduce disruption during the build phase to staff and patients, and the surrounding residential community.
“We are working to a short programme to bring these state-of-the art facilities into use as early as possible this year, to the benefit of patients and to assist with the rising demand for hospital services.”
Stephen Hatcher, Associate at P+HS Architects, said, “The building is designed to minimise impact on the environment over its life and is targeting a BREEAM excellent rating.
“It will have areas of green roof to encourage biodiversity, a highly insulated building fabric to reduce heat loss and running costs, energy-efficient ventilation and electric air source heat pump system for heating, and solar panels for electricity generation.”
