New Hospital project starts opposite Buckingham Palace

The Cleveland Clinic is a world leader in providing specialist medical care. With established, well respected hospitals and clinics in the US, Canada and UAE, they are bringing the same recognised level of medical excellence to the UK. 33 Grosvenor Place in Belgravia was purchased with a view to creating a custom built hospital and planning permission was granted in January 2017. The scheme involves demolition of the existing building whilst retaining the original facade. Once demolition is completed, a basement will be constructed before the new hospital building is built carefully connecting to the existing facade.

We are pleased to be working with Byrne Bros and The Erith Group on this complex and prestigious new healthcare facility. The new basement is designed to provide a Grade Three space in accordance with BS8102:2009. Working closely with Waterman Group Structural Engineers, FIS have produced a comprehensive structural waterproofing design using Premcrerete waterproofing systems, to ensure the basement is compliant with BS8102:2009 to Grade Three.


The basement will be protected with a high performance pre-applied waterproof membrane called Premcrete Maxiprufe Plus and Premcrete Hydrocrete water-resistant concrete. The CSSW designed system provides combined protection using a Type A and a Type B protection in accordance with BS8102:2009.


FIS provide free technical design services and advice which has been useful on this particular project as the design relating to the connection to the existing facade and the liaison between demolition contractors and main contractors who will deliver the new concrete structure.  FIS also provide full on-site technical support and training throughout the installation phase of the project. FIS make a particular point to attend site regularly during installation as part of planned installation quality control, with the complexity of this project and the length of time over which the installation will take place, having installation quality control managed by FIS is vital to ensure a successful basement delivery.
