Project Summary

Being the country’s leading Health Care Trust and an entrance that serves over 20 000 people daily, the main entrance project was a high profile scheme that proved to be logistically very challenging. The original brief was clear and simple; replace the doors and improve the reception arrangements whilst the entrance remained in operation 24/7. The project was completed over a 9 month period and involved a temporary entrance tunnel being constructed whilst construction work was carried out.

Finance Strategy

The project funds came from a s106 agreement contribution from The Shard development.

Project Challenges

  • Planning and delivering construction around the existing entrance remained in operation.
  • Logistically demanding project that required daily attention and monitoring.
  • Liasing and managing expectations taking into account special deliveries, ambulances, disabled members of the public and critical care patients.
