The project is to build a new institute, the ‘Biomedical Engineering Hub’ (BEH) to house new facilities and also re-provide accommodation from UCL’s existing buildings on the site, which are earmarked for demolition as part of the separate RNOH Master-plan project, this demolition will be outside the scope of this contract.
The new building will provide accommodation and facilities for the existing Medical Sciences and Engineering staff at Stanmore together with RNOH colleagues and expansion. There are growing collaborations between the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Engineering and the RNOH and the new BEH will allow these collaborations to grow and provide room for the expansion which is already occurring. There will be RNOH accommodation within the BEH for their Histopathology and R&I Departments.
Innovation and engagement through the design, prototyping and fabrication of novel medical devices will be at the core of the new facility. It will be central to the teaching, research and will be part of direct engagement with clinicians and industry. Incubation and development of micro-start-ups are an important part of the strategy reflecting the UCL Enterprise Strategy.
This project will expand and improve the teaching facilities at Stanmore, enhancing the student experience. New courses will be launched and are currently being developed jointly by Medical Sciences and Engineering.
There is a small portion of Clean Room Laboratory Facilities within the proposals for which a specialist Clean Room Turnkey Contractor will be appointed to feed into the developing RIBA Stage 3 design. It is anticipated that this organisation be ‘named’ in the GC Works Design & Build Form of Contract for the main construction contract.
