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.
