ELLIOTT COMPLETES £9.8M KING’S COLLEGE HOSPITAL PROJECT

  • Kings College Modular Accommodation

The part 5 storey modular wards and theatres at the country’s leading Hepatology (liver transplant) centre was constructed utilising Elliott’s innovative new bespoke steel frame modular system.

The scheme was funded through a SSAP21 compliant Operating Lease arranged through an NHS Leasing Framework specialist to ensure compliance with the strict accounting rules.

The building was completed in less than 12 months ensuring that critical operational dates were met and that disruption to the hospital was kept to a minimum.

This was a very challenging project logistically as the site is almost completely enclosed with minimal space for contractor’s site set up. Elliott’s bespoke design ensured that the new facility links to the hospital street and fits closely to the outline of the adjacent Nightingale Wards.

The high performance volumetric steel structure was designed to ensure minimal deflection in all areas and incorporates concrete floors for the operating theatres.

Elliott’s close cooperation with the architects, Architon, was critical to the success of a complex scheme of this nature.

With a 60 year structural design life and a 25 year structural warranty, the new building complies with all relevant Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) & Health Building

Notes (HBN) requirements.

Sustainable and eco features incorporated into Elliott’s design include increased levels of insulation, low-energy lighting, energy efficient heating systems and water-saving technology.

Elliott is able to act as concept designer and Principal Contractor to ensure full compliance with all relevant legislation. The company has over 50 years of delivering innovative off-site design and build solutions and is able to help clients achieve the highest environmental ratings and carbon neutrality.

King's College Hospital is a local acute care facility and major trauma centre for S.E. of England, based in the London Borough of Lambeth.
