Abstract | St Bartholomew's (Barts) and the Royal London Hospitals in London are being redeveloped into state-of-the-art facilities with sustainability integrated into all stages of the project
Description | Barts and the Royal London Hospitals are managed by the NHS (National Health Service) Trust, and annually care for over 700,000 people from across central London. Prior to the redevelopment, the hospitals were in acute need of modernisation and expansion following several decades of insufficient investment. The redevelopment project, launched in 2006 and managed by the Capital Hospitals consortium, will deliver modern hospitals that are more functional, more energy efficient and which promote healthy indoor environments.
Lessons learnt | An exemplary noise, dust and vibration protocol has been developed, which set thresholds for each of these nuisances and established a full-time monitoring regime. By implementing systematic waste processes on site, the construction team has maintained high levels of recycling and any new construction materials are responsibly sourced. An innovative 'Just in Time' delivery programme has been implemented.
