Chelsea and Westminster Hospital ICU expansion

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital ICU expansion


Work began on the redevelopment in July 2018 and phase one is now successfully completed with 12 new ICU beds supporting the critical care capacity for COVID-19 patients in London. 

Neonatal and adult patients are now being treated in the world-class facilities. Designed by Ryder Architecture, the new ICU and NICU is a patient focused environment that features some of the latest technology and equipment, bespoke furniture and specialist lighting that matches the needs of human biological cycles.

The new unit has seen a 45% increase in space allowing for an additional 400 adult patients each year. 

fermacell® fibre gypsum board was the material of choice for all internal partitions in place of standard plasterboard, as it offers a simplified solution with one board type without comprising the performance critera and finish required by the client.

fermacell® single layer partition is a severe duty system that combines optimum fire, acoustic and impact performance, making it ideal for modern hospital environments.
