Thomasons was appointed as civil and structural engineers for Chase Farm Hospital in Enfield. The contract, as part of this £150m project, was the largest ever secured by Thomasons’ London office.
When the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust purchased the hospital, many of the buildings were in a poor state of repair and dispersed over nearly 37 acres. The hospital urgently needed to be redeveloped in order to deliver 21st century healthcare.
The existing outdated hospital buildings are being replaced with a new build hospital that will deliver world-class care facilities. These include a range of wards, theatres, urgent care centre, day surgery, outpatient ambulatory care zone, imaging, diagnostics and supporting facilities, together with a new energy centre and car park extension.
The project is managed by Integrated Healthcare Projects, under the NHS ProCure21+ National Framework, with Thomasons as a Principal Supply Chain Member. Working as part of a team with architects IBI Group and building services engineers Troup Bywaters + Anders, our engineers are designing the sub-structure and super-structure of the new hospital building, as well as the underground surface water and foul water drainage, estate roads and a new junction on to the public highway.
The team’s leading innovative design has been developed in consultation with all departments and clinicians, and includes flexible options that will allow service changes to be introduced in future.
