II.2.1)Total quantity or scope:

The project brief is to create a new Critical Care Unit (CCU) for Kings College Hospital Foundation Trust to over sail the existing 3 storey pitched roof theatre block with some basement accommodation, by way of an independent steel frame column/truss superstructure. The internal configuration is designed for tertiary healthcare level 3 patients over 2 floors comprising circa 30 beds on each floor. In addition the plant serving the existing theatre block is to be replaced and serviced from a new composite plant room which will serve the new CCU space and the existing theatres.
The project will deliver a consolidated critical care facility at Kings College Hospital Denmark Hill Campus, compliant with current DoH guidelines and HBN/HTM standards and also meeting the Hospital’s strategic direction for further developing key strategic specialities to support Kings as a Major Trauma Centre (MTC).
The estimated value is between 20 000 000 GBP and 22 000 000 GBP and will include the following:
— Creation of final sub-structure elements, temporary works and services diversions as required (if not already delivered as part of a separate enabling project),
— Construction of a structural steel frame surrounding the existing theatre block,
— Formation of storey height truss elements at plant room level; these are to be pushed into final location utilising a hydraulic movement method (over the occupied live theatre block). The truss arrangement will then support the roof, plant deck, CCU 2 deck and the majority of the CCU 1 deck, as described below,
— Creation of a plant floor within storey height truss construction and a suspended floor below (known and CCU2),
— Roofing and cladding to form an external envelope with curtain walling facing onto Ruskin park,
— Extension of lift and stair cores and upgrade and renewal of lifts on a phased basis,
— Following completion of external envelope, the existing theatre block roof will be removed to reveal the existing theatre plant room. Once the plant change over’s have been completed the existing plant will be removed this space will form shell and core space for the subsequent fit-out known as CCU1,
— Fit out of the plant floor to serve the exiting theatres and CCU 2,
— Fit out of CCU level 2,
— Change over of existing theatre plant,
— Associated upgrade, diversion and refurbishment works.
The design of the project safeguards opportunities for the following additional works to be implemented which are being considered by the Trust:
— It is possible that the Trust, subject to further consideration, may consider extension of the project to include the fit out of CCU level 1,
— It is possible that the Trust, subject to further consideration, may consider extension of the project to include the provision of a helicopter deck and ancillary facilities on top of an existing adjacent Trust building with lift access to be formed linking the new facility to the existing theatre block and new CCU facility. These works may also include refit of the existing ICU space into a hybrid theatre.
Estimated value excluding VAT:
Range: between 20 000 000 and 22 000 000 GBP
