The project will see delivery of an innovative new generic shell and core building that enables fit-out flexibility for healthcare and potentially co-located complementary research and teaching facilities. Adaptability to enable change over time has been a key driver. The Triangle development will provide increased capacity for the existing Evelina London Children's Hospital (ELCH).
The new hospital will offer much needed facilities, including surgical theatres and imaging suites, for children and young people from across south London and south east England. The project is creating significant opportunities for the advancement of innovation in treatments and technologies as part of the Trust’s long-term vision.
The new facilities also offer new employment for residents in the London Borough of Lambeth, while the ambitious plans for landscaping will improve the public realm on this part of the Lambeth Palace Road.
Ramboll forms part of a project team supporting Linkcity, including architects, Hawkins\Brown, fellow engineering firm, Aecom and planning consultants Montagu Evans. The Trust was advised on design by architects NBBJ, engineers Mott MacDonald, and planning consultants G L Hearn.
Linkcity’s Managing Director, Nicolas Guérin, said:
“Linkcity is delighted to be working with the Trust to bring forward this iconic and innovative development to the St Thomas’ campus. The Trust’s adaptable estate and procurement strategies are game-changers in the way the industry provides healthcare real estate and we are proud to be a part of this forward-looking partnership. The Triangle project will continue to cement the Trust’s reputation as a global leader in children’s healthcare, as well as improve the health and wellbeing of families in Lambeth and beyond.”
Iain Mitchell Jones, Ramboll Project Director, adds:
“It’s a privilege to be supporting Linkcity on such an important project for Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust. We look forward to delivering a highly adaptable building, providing new state-of-the-art facilities for Children’s healthcare.”
