Offsite construction approach used to deliver new facility
Wernick Buildings is using a modular solution to create a new gynaecology unit at Kingston Hospital
Construction of a new gynaecology outpatient building is underway at Kingston Hospital in south west London.
Due for completion in August, the £5.4m facility will provide a modern and welcoming environment for both outpatient consultations and procedures.
Wernick Buildings is working alongside ADP Architecture to deliver the unit, which can be expanded or relocated to suit the future needs of the hospital.
Built offsite in Wernick’s modular building facility in south west Wales, this single-storey building, with second-storey plant room, will provide 980sq m of clinical space on the Kingston Hospital campus.
The building’s 30 modules were craned into place over two weekends to reduce disturbance to the surrounding areas.
Angela Clarke, associate director of capital development at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “This project has had to move at speed to meet the demands for clinical space, but in doing so we have created a bespoke environment with plenty of flexibility for the future.”
