University College London Hospital, Queens Square Wards

Type: Refurbishment
Value: £4.5m

Our first project with UCLH NHS Trust was the refurbishment of the Queens Square wards to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN). First, Fourth and Sixth Floors were undertaken in phases together with external works totalling £4.5m.

The project design was created as a 3D model and included BIM and COBie requirements for the CDP elements of the project.

The works included the strip out of each floor and creation of modern new wards which involved several specialist services installations including medical gasses, nurse call and bed head services, all of which needed to be carefully co-ordinated.


New walls, ceilings, joinery, flooring, decorations and medical furniture were all included for the ward works, together with some window replacements and structural repairs externally.

The live nature of the building and landlocked location of the wards made the project logistically challenging with all access via a front scaffold which also needed to house a cabin set up.

The success of this first project and our collaborative relationships with the client and professional team has led to the award of several further projects for UCLH including works to the Albany Wing Basement, Library, Molly Lane Fox Wards and Medical Intensive Therapy Unit.
