ME Construction were awarded the fast tracked project to construct a new a consulting room wing and a glass atrium within an existing courtyard for Guy's & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust at Gassiot House. This contract had a value of just over Five Million Pounds and a construction period of seven months. The project had numerous challenges including working within an occupied building where the floor below the site area was a children’s crèche and the area adjacent to the work area being the Nightingale Museum. Additionally there were two other buildings above the site which housed the board management of the Hospital and a 24 hour Accommodation wing for patients and staff.

The project consisted of phased handovers within the construction site areas, in order to allow both the relocation of departments and continuity of construction work. ME Construction held numerous meetings on a regular basis, between all parties, in order to discuss the coordination of services, construction processes and procedures, as well as movement and requirements of the client and end users. This ensured positive communication from the subcontractors used on site and the flow of deliveries and materials through to the relocation of departments and end user requirements.
