Nuffield Health, Cambridge
After supplying a fully detailed proposal to Nuffield Health for the construction of its new facility – a major commitment for Nuffield - Simons was able to bring to fruition this 38 bed hospital project despite it being an extremely challenging site.
Residential estates, a hospital, a private school and a major road surrounded the site which required Simons to utilise all its skills in extensive planning, consultation and communication to ensure the project was delivered on time and to budget.
The design of the steel framed building was influenced by the phasing of works required to minimise disruption and deliver the project within a tight timeframe. The second phase of works saw a major refurbishment of the existing building to create a fresh office space and further car-parking, enhanced by extensive landscaping.
The finished building now houses in and outpatient departments, 16 consulting rooms, oncology and endoscopy services, physiotherapy, pharmacy and three state of the art digital theatres.
