Nuffield Health at St. Bart’s site comprises of two buildings within the St Bartholomew’s Hospital site. These are: -
The Old & Modern Pathology Building The Residential Staff Quarters Building
Both buildings are currently unused by the Hospital Trust and are vacant. They both have Edwardian ‘restrained classical’ style facades constructed in traditional Portland stone. The design has been developed to meet Nuffield Health' requirements to deliver modern, efficient and patient focused healthcare facilities. The Nuffield Health site is being designed to operate as a stand-alone private hospital facility.
The Pathology building will contain 4Nr theatres, diagnostics rooms including MRI, CT and X-ray, and two ward floors with 15Nr patient rooms per floor. The RSQ building is largely a support building, with consulting rooms, office space and some diagnostic and minor clinical facilities.
The Old Pathology Building front and return facades will be retained, using an externally founded steel façade retention system, with the rest of the building demolished fully, inclusive of the existing basement slab. New piled foundations will then be installed to form a new basement raft and, a reinforced concrete frame will be erected. The new rear façade will be clad in Portland stone to match the existing rear facade, and a new dormer roof structure will house the roof top plant areas.
The Modern Pathology Building consists of a steel frame superstructure generally with pre-cast concrete plank floor slabs. The structural steel frame will be strengthened inclusive of localised additional pile caps and following this the existing floor slabs will be progressively demolished and replaced with composite slabs. The façade is a plain Portland stone which is largely retained, apart from the circa 5m wide Giltspur Street elevation which is removed and replaced with curtain walling.
The main Client is Nuffield Health however there are several other key stakeholders involved in the scheme including Bart’s NHS Trust. Nuffield Health at St Bartholomew’s Hospital is being built in the City of London and will be the only Independent hospital in the City.
