Critical Care Unit
Feasibility study on Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital to examine the consolidation and co-location of dispersed critical care units. Our proposal adopts 100% single bedrooms as a minimum standard and maximises the number of critical care beds through dense planning. We propose to relocate critical care beds into a single building over two floors. Direct access to operating theatres presents benefits for post-surgical care on the ground floor while locating non-surgical medical and specialist care beds on the first floor.

Dermatology Unit
Option appraisal for the relocation of the Dermatology Unit to Guy’s Hospital to allow operation from a single facility, which would also benefit from the direct access to specialist academic centre. Our design proposal consolidates the dermatology outpatients, teaching and administrative functions into an efficiently planned reuse of exiting accommodation, freeing up space for valuable additional clinical activity.

Maternity Unit
Strategic Design and Health Planning for production information and tender stages for a new operating theatre and Labour, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum standard delivery rooms. We undertook a detailed review of the current proposals and the generation of room data sheets, advising on compliance with current standards.

Endoscopy Unit
The relocation and upgrade of the Endoscopy Unit at St Thomas’s Hospital to achieve appropriate accreditation and accommodate a forecasted increase in referrals and number of procedures. We prepared room data sheets and equipment list in active consultation and co-ordination with the wider project team.
