BDP DESIGN TEAM APPOINTED TO MANAGE WEST HERTFORDSHIRE HOSPITAL PROJECTS

04/12/2020

We have won the contract to redevelop the three hospitals managed by West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust (WHHT).

The ambitious plans include the design of around 90% of new buildings at the Watford General Hospital site and new facilities at the hospitals in Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.

Our architect-led design team will draw on the experience of a wide range of in-house healthcare sector experts to provide specialist help and support to deliver the outline business case (OBC) and design concepts for all three sites. The contract also means we will be providing expertise in designing innovative, world-class, highly sustainable healthcare buildings.

This is the latest in a line of recent healthcare project successes, including the design of the NHS Nightingale hospitals, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Clatterbridge Cancer Centre in Liverpool, Grange University Hospital in Wales and the Brunel Building at Southmead Hospital in Bristol.

Duane Passman, the trust’s acute redevelopment programme director, said: “Not only have BDP created hospital buildings that look stunning, their focus on getting the design right for patients – down to the tiniest detail – impressed us. We are also assured by their experience of developing new hospital buildings on existing sites and we are confident that they understand the importance of minimising disruption, keeping sites safe and making sure that services can continue to run as normal.

Delivering a project of this scale and complexity is very much a partnership between the trust and BDP and requires working with various partners from construction firms to local authorities to create buildings which will support the sustainable delivery of healthcare.”

Project director, Paul Johnson said: “We are delighted to have been selected to design this redevelopment project for WHHT, supported by our interdisciplinary team of architects, engineers, landscape designers and town planners.

We look forward to a successful and creative partnership with the many WHHT colleagues who will be involved in the project. We are absolutely confident that the resulting estate will be something that we, the trust and the people of Hertfordshire will be justifiably proud of.”

MTS Advising on Brighton 3T’s

MTS Advising on Brighton 3T’s

Role Equipment Procurement Advisory

MTS is working with the Brighton University Hospitals NHS Trust on their 3T’s project. MTS had worked on this with BDP and the Trust in the initial phase.

The Trust is preparing for the procurement installation and commissioning of the equipment ready for the opening in 2023.

BDP Architecture: PROJECT DETAILS

Our solution fits a large scale hospital sensitively into its historic context. The topography of the site is fully exploited with the mass of the building broken down into fingers, which contain the bulk of the ward accommodation and face south with views over the English Channel.

We were involved in detailed negotiations with the local planning authority and English Heritage, in relation to design and heritage issues. We also led extensive negotiations with the local authority on the complex Section 106 Agreement and planning conditions.

Two new state-of-the-art hospital buildings will bring Elderly Care, General Medicine, HIV and Clinical Infection wards up to modern standards, and establish the hospital as the Major Trauma Centre for the region. The new build will include 361 beds, 65% of which will be in single en-suite rooms, a helipad and additional parking spaces underground.

BRIEF

  • redevelop the Royal Sussex County Hospital on a very constrained site
  • replace 200 year old buildings with modern facilities for the provision of 21st century healthcare

RESULTS

  • a reinvigorated sense of place and an environment that is as reassuring and welcoming as possible
  • the planning application, labelled by officers as “Brighton’s most complex application,” received a unanimous decision to grant consent from the planning committee in January 2012
  • the largest application that our planning team has led
