Replacing outdated facilities at Great Ormond Street Hospital

The project

  • 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  • The new building will replace outdated facilities with a high quality environment consistent with the hospital’s world-renowned paediatric care and research activities.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:
  1. Age and gender sensitive environments
  2. Inclusive environments for children
  3. Designing for inclusion
  4. GOSH arts
  5. Research & Development
  6. Facilities for parents
  7. Facilities for staff
  8. Facilities for children
