The New Victoria Hospital in Kingston upon Thames made history with the completion of a new double height wing. The £10.5 million project to upgrade the existing South London facility included an extension and alteration to the existing building creating a enlarged 2660m² area of floor space.
Rydon were selected to complete the project in five phases of work to ensure the minimisation of any disruption to the continued operation of the hospital.
Phase 1 & 2: Dedicated to enabling works and the new build extension, with the inclusion to the housing day surgery and facilities, four new operating rooms, theatre changing room and a sterile unit. There was also an added pathology and seminar room alongside a staff dining canteen.
Phase 3 & 4: A new build CT scanning suite was introduced at this stage, with an outpatient & inpatient’s reception. Consulting rooms with associated facilities built during in Phase 4. This saw the redundant building, Coombe Manor was demolished.
Final Phase: The final phase delivered four new bedrooms, ultrasound and bone density rooms with associated facilities, as well as the removal of temporary accommodation units.
A number of carbon reduction and environmental initiatives were incorporated, including photovoltaic panels. The new-build section of the project was build to the BREEAM ‘Very Good’ specification.
A PRIVATE HOSPITAL OF EXCELLENCE
The private charity owned hospital is one of the few remaining independent hospitals in the country. It has been frequently ranked by patients as one of the top private hospitals in London. In 2015 the hospital was shortlisted as a finalist in the Nursing Practice category of the national Laing Buisson Awards and in March 2016 went on to win a prestigious CHKS Top Hospital Award.
