This project consists of the remodelling and refurbishment of two iconic buildings within the St. Barts Hospital site – the Old Pathology Building and the Residential Staff Quarters which together, will provide a new private hospital for Nuffield Health. The principal focus of the building is cardiac work and it will provide cardiac services for all aspects of the care pathway including outpatient consultation, diagnostic testing intervention and rehabilitation services for adults suffering from heart conditions.
STW Architects contracted FIS to produce a detailed design for the waterproofing of the existing building as well as the new basement extension. As always, working with existing buildings can be challenging, however an effective structural waterproofing design was developed that managed the risks and met the performance specification. FIS worked with Kier and Deconstruct throughout the project to ensure that it was delivered on time.
