Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children is begun the search for a team to deliver the fourth phase of its redevelopment masterplan.
The famous London hospital has not even completed phase two of its redevelopment but is already moving forward with masterplanning the £190m fourth phase.
The hospital trust has published a contract notice in the EU Official Journal for a multidisciplinary design team with prime contractor for phase four of its campus redevelopment programme.
This will be a new circa 23 000 m2 building “to present a less institutional facade to visitors”. The contract notice states: “The Trust wishes to appoint a multi-disciplinary design team with prime contractor familiar with working on complex projects with complicated institutions and other key stakeholders, and which assembles a multi-disciplinary team capable of generating an outstanding vision for the phase four redevelopment and seeing that vision through to construction and completion on site.”
The trust will use the competitive dialogue procedure because of the technical and legal complexity of the project.
Requests to participate or submissions of interest must be in by 7th October 2016.
Skanska is set to complete Phase 2B, the Premier Inn Clinical Building within the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre, in 2017. The same contractor is also building Phase 3, the £65m Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children, completing in 2018. It is envisaged that Phase 4 will complete in 2022.
