UCLH has appointed Mace to deliver a new state-of-the-art centre for its internationally renowned services, further enhancing its status as world leading hospital and university campus in central London.
The new centre, which will be located on Huntley Street, has been co-designed with patients and staff and will bring together services currently provided at the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNEH) and Eastman Dental Hospital (EDH), in addition to other UCLH services.
The building navigation has been planned so that the zones that reflect how patients are treated and there will be a floor specifically for the care and treatment of children.
Mace has worked on a number of complex healthcare projects in the capital including the East Wing cladding project and the Positron Emission Tomography Centre for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, the refurbishment of Chelsea & Westminster Hospital as well as managing the redesign of UCLH’s A&E department.
Terry Spraggett, Director for Public Sector Construction at Mace, said: “I’m delighted that Mace has been appointed by UCLH as main contractor on this significant and complex hospital project, which is challenging both in terms of the construction and logistics of the site.
“Mace has a strong track record of delivering complex healthcare projects across the UK to an exceptionally high quality.
“We look forward to bringing our experience to this project and helping UCLH realise its vision to deliver better treatment and care for patients.”
