This Institute is a 5,255m┬▓ centre of excellence and is occupied by King's College Hospital. This building rehouses the world leading Harris Birth right Centre, caring for more than 10,000 patients each year, in a high quality hospital and research environment. The Fetal Medicine Foundation is a registered charity that aims to improve the health of pregnant women and their babies through research and training.
The project is located within the King's College Hospital campus and provides; ultrasound scanning, consulting rooms, treatment rooms, diagnostic laboratories, research laboratories, teaching facilities, lecture theatre, conference rooms, associated administrative and office spaces.
The project involved the partial demolition and refurbishment of the existing terrace houses on Windsor Walk. To the rear of the houses the new medical centre was constructed and connected to the refurbished houses. Feature columns extend from the ground and are shaped to form the arched roof of the building. Within these the main clinical and public spaces are enclosed creating a calm, stimulating environment for its users.
This state-of-the-art building was designed, installed and commissioned to the highest levels of Quality. The beautiful Architecture and bespoke Structural components were further enhanced by a bespoke lighting system, installed to create a calming environment. The building also boasts a CAT 6 Data Installation, Access Control and a high quality Audio Visual System installed throughout.
In order to maintain the minimalist, modern aesthetic, Underfloor Heating was installed throughout to reduce visible services and ensure a comfortable environment for patients.
To ensure full Client control, a complex Building Management System was installed affording the ability to, not only create bespoke environments to suit individual needs, but also to monitor and adjust the buildings energy consumption.
The project was also installed with a bespoke inset Sprinkler system and a staff attack system.
The M&E Design and Installation was led by Harvey Group and successfully achieved BREEAM Excellent.
