These works at Springfield Hospital redevelopment focus on the new mental health facilities set across two new buildings in Tooting, South London. The works include ventilation and heating systems, variable refrigerant flow (VRF) cooling and domestic services.
Alongside the works related to specialist electrical systems including security, nurse call alarms, a large image data package and car charging points will be covered. The new buildings are going up next to Springfield Hospital’s existing Grade II listed main site on Glenburnie Road.
The main hospital reception, wards, outpatient departments and training facilities will be included in the new three-storey non-forensic building. Four secure wards and a facility management workshop will be included in the neighboring forensic building.
Prism will deliver a significant part of the works for the BIM level 2 projects while SES will use its offsite manufacturing facility. This includes 150 corridor and riser modules, taking an estimated 8,000 labour hours away from the site.
The construction is expected to complete at the end of 2021 with SES recently starting the project. The £150m hospital project is part of a wider regeneration of the former Springfield University Hospital site.
