Architon were responsible for the concept and overall design with carrying out a Project Management role from concept to completion. The building is linked to the main hospital street and the project included an enabling package of works, to clear the site, resite and remodel a pre-fab duplex unit elsewhere onto the Denmark Hill campus.

The building comprises of two transplant theatres with a shared Anaesthetic area and ancillary theatre accommodation at one level including a 3 bedded HD Recovery area. The remaining three levels comprise of Ward accommodation with a mixture of single and multiple bedded wards, totalling an additional 47 bed spaces. Each Ward is independent in terms of its ancillary accommodation provision and one also included for three number appropriately designed isolation suites, all with their associated separate plant regimes.

In order for the building to function correctly, independent Medical Gas facilities and electrical supplies were brought to the site alongside upgrading the water/drainage services around the area. The facility has a separate zone at roof level to provide new Air Handling / Chilling requirements and also has the inclusion of brise solei to assist in its energy consumption along with PV panels at roof level.

In all, the building took about 2 months to construct with over 100 modular units delivered to a tight programme.
