The design excellence of a new urology centre at the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, one of the largest centres for the treatment of prostate cancer in Europe, has been recognised in the 2019 Building Better Healthcare awards.
The £3.3m The Stokes Centre for Urology, for which Clarkebond provided civil and structural engineering services, was highly commended in the Patient Environment award category for Best Interior Design Project (New Build).
The project included the formation of a new build two storey centralised hub for the urology department plus consultation and treatment rooms, administrative and staff accommodation, clinical facilities and new lecture facilities.
Constructed on pad foundations, this steel frame building has a contemporary style, featuring a curved front, open atrium entrance and is further enhanced externally by copper cladding panels, along with white rendered walls and complementary facing bricks and a flat roof.
“The project had considerable engineering challenges relating to the siting of the development right in front of the main hospital building and the requirement for a high specification building with a tight budget,” commented Clarkebond Regional Director Theodore Tai. “We carried out a comprehensive value engineering exercise to identify best value whilst retaining integrity of design and finishes.“
