Contract: St Barts Hospital, Little Britain, London EC1

Contractor: Skanska Construction UK Ltd

Client: St Barts Hospital Trust

Phase Two of the hospital near Smithfield Market was completed in 2013. This site has been the location of a hospital for some 900 years. Eventually the hospital will be transformed into a cancer and cardiac centre. Phase Two will complete the new hospital and the refurbishment of an existing block.

Anglewest carried out the preliminary works for the Phase Two contract which mainly consisted of screens formed using a framework of scaffolding to the external elevations and atrium clad with “Tufcoat” shrink wrap encapsulation sheeting. This gave a completely watertight and dust free environment in which to accelerate the M&E works prior to the building envelope being completed.

The preliminary works were completed in November 2012.
