Banyards Provide Commissioning Expertise to Great Ormond Street Hospital

ORMOND_S.jpgBanyards are providing commissioning management and validation services to Kier on two specialist projects at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.


The project relates to the CICU Expansion which is to be located at level 4 of the Premier Inn clinical building (PICB) at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). The new services installations shall generally re-utilise the existing primary infrastructure and distribution systems within the building. A dedicated new supply and extract AHU shall be provided to serve the isolation suite within the new accommodation. The main works to level 04 will be in specific areas of the floor, this being the SW corner where the new CICU bedrooms and isolation suite are to be incorporated. For this area of the floor the existing services are to be fully stripped out and reconfigured to suit the new CICU layout and services requirement. The bedheads units within the bedrooms are to be replaced with bedhead units incorporating a higher level of services to suit an HDU application. The existing services shall be uprated to suit the newbedhead provision and new lighting requirements within the rooms.  The existing ventilation/ cooling and heating services are to remain as existing, albeit remounted and refitted as necessary to suit the electrical works that will need to be undertaken. The new works will involve the adaption of the existing drainage at level 03 of the building which is anticipated will be occupied and operational at the time when the CICU expansion works are carried out.

IMRI (Southwood Courtyard Project)

A new three-storey building extending from the existing operating theatres at the heart of the site will enable surgical teams to check whether complex procedures have worked – before their patients wake up.

The building contains an Intraoperative Magnetic Resonance suite as well as physiotherapy and rehabilitation facilities.

Completing in early 2018 the scheme covers:

  • New Physiotherapy Department at Level 02
  • New Intraoperative MRI Scanner Suite at Level 03
  • New plant areas at Level 04
  • BREEAM Very Good
