Four brand new cancer wards are being created for Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust – which has chosen a contractor that first worked at Guy’s Hospital 70 years ago in 1949.
BAM Construction, part of the worldwide Royal BAM Group, has been chosen to deliver the works which will see four new wards added to the third and fourth floors of Bermondsey Wing, and extensive mechanical, electrical and pipework upgrades.
Guy’s and St Thomas’ is currently discussing the full contractual details with BAM which is now on site at Guy’s Hospital operating under a pre-contractual agreement to conduct initial works.
When finalised, the full works will strip out parts of Bermondsey Wing to its shell, and result in several new en-suite wards, with the teenage and young adult ward being the first phase.
Other new facilities will include nursing areas, offices and a gym.
