This project is for the recladding of the 13-storey East Wing building on the St Thomas’ Hospital site in central London. The existing façade is enclosed within a new glazed exterior and two new atria are also being created from the second floor up.
The primary aims of the scheme are to create a long-term solution to address a problem of water ingress into the building, provide new bed lifts, improve energy efficiency by controlling solar gain and glare and improve the image of the building and site-wide campus. The East Wing building contains over 200 beds together with catheter suites, clinical offices, teaching facilities and ancillary plant and stores.
The East Wing will remain in operation throughout the works, but by leaving the existing façade in place, disruption to occupants and neighbours is being significantly reduced.
