Two storey, 36 module hospital building

Interim housing for specialist medical services facilities

Organisation : Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth

Building Use : Healthcare

Product : Cabins, Modular Buildings

Location : St John's Wood, London

Requirement :

The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth – the third largest independent hospital in the UK – required a new building to house specialist medical facilities during an £11m development project to extend the hospital's services.

Solution :

Portakabin (Refurbished) completed construction of the new two-storey scheme two weeks ahead of schedule. It accommodates fully air conditioned offices, consulting rooms, a medical examination room and a pressure chamber for treating patients with complex tissue disorders, carbon monoxide poisoning and diving injuries – one of only two in the London area.

Three of the steel-framed building modules were reconfigured to incorporate a concrete floor to support the weight of the 5 tonne hyperbaric chamber and the end wall was designed to be demountable to allow for its installation. The chamber was successfully relocated to the new building with a planned downtime of only 24 hours to minimise disruption to patient care.

The facility comprises 36 modules, which were fitted out off-site at Portakabin (Refurbished)' production centre in East Yorkshire. The cranage programme was carefully planned to meet the restrictions associated with a central London site.

"We are delighted with the new building and with Portakabin (Refurbished) seamless and professional delivery. They have provided us with a high quality, purpose-designed facility, which exactly meets our needs and budget. And they delivered it with minimal disruption two weeks ahead of our original programme."

Claire Hornick, Director of Operations at Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth
