Replacing outdated facilities at Great Ormond Street Hospital
- Turley is currently providing a combined Planning, Heritage & Townscape and Landscape & Visual Impact Assesment (VIA) offer in support of the submission of a planning application which will be submitted to the London Borough of Camden towards the end of 2020.
- The new development will redevelop the existing Frontage Building at GOSH and replace with a new state of the art building that will become the new “front door” to the hospital.
- The design brief for the development was created in partnership with staff, patients and families articulating their shared aspiration for a building to express the key GOSH guiding principle: ‘The child first and always’.
- The new building will replace outdated facilities with a high quality environment consistent with the hospital’s world-renowned paediatric care and research activities.
Contribution to meeting UNSDGs
- Cancer services is one of GOSH’s most significant clinical departments, it is the largest children’s cancer centre in the UK. As a regional, highly specialised, tertiary and quaternary referral centre, children and their families travel long distances for treatment and care at GOSH.
- Notwithstanding the need to provide a world class medical facility, the Children’s Cancer Centre (CCC) will be designed to create a welcoming and inclusive environment with key considerations being the need to design for:
- Age and gender sensitive environments
- Inclusive environments for children
- Designing for inclusion
- GOSH arts
- Research & Development
- Facilities for parents
- Facilities for staff
- Facilities for children
