Kingston Hospital Willow Building
A new healthcare clinic in Greater London has been completed by Wernick Buildings.
Due to the closure of a previous three-story building on site, Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was looking for a new purpose-built unit to house its growing outpatient services for the Gynaecology, Audiology and Ear, Nose and Throat departments.
After a discussion with the Wernick Buildings team, it was decided that two separate modular healthcare buildings onsite would offer the most timely and cost-effective solution to accommodate all three hospital departments.
The first building delivered by Wernick was the Gynaecology Outpatient Clinic (Willow Building).
Through a competitive tender process, Wernick Buildings presented a full turnkey solution, which included a complete groundworks package and service connection.
- Project name: Kingston Hospital (Gynaecology)
- Sector: Healthcare
- Location: Kingston
- Client name: Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
- Supplied by: Wernick Buildings
- Accommodation type: Gynaecology Outpatient Clinic
- Size: 500 m2 (30 modules)
- Features: PV panels, treatment rooms, open-plan waiting room, office, kitchen, accessible toilets, plant room
Designed for outpatient use, the two-storey BREEAM-rated block offers several HTN/HBN-compliant amenities including consultation areas, procedure and recovery rooms, staff offices, changing facilities and accessible toilets.
The building is comprised of 30 modules and showcases sleek cladding, PV panels, and a state-of-the-art plant room on the second storey.
Wernick worked closely with ADP Architecture during the design process. The clinic features a modern interior with a cool green colour pallet designed to help provide a calming environment for patients.
Wernick was also able to provide two temporary modular office buildings to house other displaced departments that were relocated from the hospital’s Roehampton Wing.
The building modules were constructed off-site, which allowed for minimal disruption and noise pollution to the surrounding area.
Crews overcame several challenges when transporting and installing the modules into place on the property.
A second clinic (Aspen Building) housing the Audiology and Ear, Nose and Throat departments is due to be completed in Spring 2023.
The building was ready to use very quickly. We were excited about being involved with the design team from the beginning to get exactly what we wanted. The space is very modern and comfortable.
