New Urgent Care Centre, University Hospital Lewisham

£12m refurbishment and extension of the A&E department at University Hospital Lewisham for the development of the new Urgent Care Centre.

Client: Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust

Value: £12m

The work has been undertaken as a Procure 21 project with Kier London. In addition to the refurbishment of the existing building a new 3 storey modular block has been erected to provide 950m2 of clinical space. All work was undertaken in a live hospital environment involving phased decanting of clinical departments to facilitate the works.

Prior to the above CampbellReith was also appointed by the Trust to provide structural, civil and mechanical and electrical engineering services associated with the £6m Phase 3 of the hospital’s masterplan. The project included the demolition of a number of existing buildings and associated structures within a live hospital environment, whilst ensuring the continued uninterrupted cooperation of adjacent hospital facilities.

This involved the design and construction of ancillary structures to create and maintain new safe access routes and creating temporary car parking and accommodation facilities on the site of demolished buildings whilst plans for future land was being finalised.

Following on from the Urgent Care Centre development CampbellReith has also been appointed by the University Hospital Lewisham Trust on a number of further works across the hospital site. These have included strengthening of the existing 1950’s building to allow for the installation of a new roof supported x-ray gantry. We have also carried out assessments on the dynamic performance of the existing estate buildings and advised on strengthening works to meet the stringent requirements for the installation of a new gamma camera.
