Kings College Hospital: Update
London Network Scaffolding LTD’s works at London’s iconic King’s College Hospital have rapidly progressed over the past two months.
The project now encompasses provisions for access to London’s third helipad facility for client; McLaughlin & Harvey Ltd (MCLH).
London’s new helipad facility will serve 5.5 million people across south east London and Kent.
Rob Bentley, Director of Trauma at King’s College Hospital said “King’s is already a Major Trauma Centre, but with the addition of a helipad on the hospital site we will bring truly world-class trauma facilities to this part of London.”
The helipad is being constructed in conjunction with a £35 million project which will see the construction of two floors of critical care units over live operating theatres.
London Network Scaffolding LTD are utilising their preferred material partner, Layher UK to supply the necessary kit to construct the new helipad and hoist tower (seen to the right) to ensure a safe, secure and quick erection to meet the clients needs onsite.
“With the use of Layher UK on all major projects going forward we’re able to demonstrate just how far we’ve moved forward as a business. From tight client timeframes being met through to safety critical site requirements and overall professionalism, LNS are proving a point. The KCH project really is an amazing ongoing opportunity for our operatives and our workforce as a whole. The relationship we’ve built with key personnel within MCLH is second to none. We’re very proud to be continuing our scaffold works on this significant project for London and the South East.” – Gary Flynn (Director—London Network Scaffolding LTD)
Work commenced on site in 2014. The hospital, located at Denmark Hill, South London, featured in Channel 4’s documentary, 24 Hours in A&E, first broadcast on 11 May 2011.
