Elliott bags £10m off-site London hospital job

19 March 2013

Elliott Off-Site Building Solutions has picked up a £10m design and build project at King’s College Hospital in London.

The 4-storey ward and theatre block will be constructed using Elliott’s ‘Progression’ modular system. Elliott is principal contractor on the construction programme which is scheduled to complete in just 24 weeks. A high performance volumetric steel structure will be built to ensure minimal deflection in all areas with concrete floors for operating theatres.

Elliott is providing a full turnkey solution that involves working with long-term partner Howorth, the leading air management & operating equipment manufacturer, on the theatre design and fitout.  The new building is designed with a 50-year structural design life and a 25-year structural warranty.

Jason Dodd, head of projects from King’s College Hospital, said: “Elliott was able to provide us with a full turnkey solution within the strict 24 week build schedule. We were impressed with how their ‘Progression’ modular system is able to keep disruption to a minimum, which is important on this development as the main hospital has to remain open and accessible for the duration.”

Ben Pemberton, Sector Leader for Healthcare at Elliott Off-Site Building Solutions. “We have utilised our modular system on many other healthcare developments and are confident of delivering a successful project outcome.” He added that construction would start shortly at the logistically challenging site which is almost completely enclosed with little space for site set up.
