Elliott Off-Site Building Solutions has been appointed Principle Contractor for the prestigious £9.8m Infill 4 Design and Build project at King’s College Hospital in London. This 4 storey ward and theatre block will be constructed utilising Elliott’s innovative new Progression modular system.
The construction programme is just 24 weeks, ensuring that critical operational dates are met and that disruption to the hospital is minimised. The high performance volumetric steel structure has been designed to ensure minimal deflection in all areas and incorporates concrete floors for the operating theatres. Elliott is providing a full turnkey solution that involves working with long-term partner Howorth, the leading air management & operating equipment manufactuer, on the theatre design and fitout.
Architon are the architects for the scheme and working closey with their team Elliott has built up a great relationship that is critical on a scheme of this nature.
With a 50 year structural design life and a 25 year structural warranty, the new Infill 4 building will comply 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.
Jason Dodd – Head of Projects from Kings College Hospital, said: “Elliott was able to provide us with a full turnkey solution within the strict 24 week build schedule. We were impressed with how their ‘Progression’ modular system is able to keep disruption to a minimum, which is important on this development as the main hospital has to remain open and accessible for the duration.” This is 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 ensures that the new facility links to the hospital street and
fits closely to the outline of the adjacent Nightingale Wards. “We will shortly begin work on Infill 4 project at Kings College Hospital,” said Ben Pemberton, Sector Leader for Healthcare at Elliott Off-Site Building Solutions. “We have utilised our modular system on many other healthcare developments and are confident of delivering a successful project outcome.”
