The scheme covers:
Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is an international centre of excellence in child healthcare. Together with their research partner, the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, they form the UK’s only academic Biomedical Research Centre specialising in paediatrics. Since its formation in 1852, the hospital has been dedicated to children’s healthcare and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses.
Great Ormond Street Hospital receives 252,389 outpatient visits and 43,778 inpatient visits every year (figures from 2016/17). Most of the children they care for are referred from other hospitals throughout the UK and overseas. There are 63 different clinical specialties at GOSH; the UK’s widest range of specialist health services for children on one site.
The project relates to the CICU Expansion which is 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 new bedhead 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 on level 03 of the building, which will be occupied and operational at the time when the CICU expansion works are carried out.
