The Stanmore Building opens: architecture, technology and art

We opened our new Stanmore Building at the weekend (8-9 Dec), fusing the latest architectural design and health technology with contemporary art and poems to produce a stunning building that provides a unique environment for patients and staff.

The Stanmore Building offers the very best ward facilities for many patients and allows staff to work in an environment matching their skill and dedication. It comes after a thirty year campaign to replace many of the old ward buildings that date from World War Two.

RNOH redevelopment: new time-lapse video showing progress so far

Time-lapse video showing progress so far

Take a look at the construction of the new inpatient ward block at our Stanmore site. This time-lapse film, shot by Jan Letocha, covers the whole of the project so far, from demolition of the old Patient Centre right up to the last pouring of the concrete to the top level last week. There is still more to do but we hope this gives you a flavour of progress so far made by Balfour Beatty.

Progress on the construction of our new five-storey inpatient ward block is well underway. Much of the concrete for the bottom level has been poured and the shape of the building is becoming clearer each day. You can see a bird's eye view if you're not afraid of heights!

Since starting work in August 2016, work has progressed swiftly on the redevelopment of the RNOH at Stanmore and construction of the new Inpatient Ward Block. The demolition of the old Patient Centre, sorting of the waste materials for recycling, and preparation for the groundwork has meant there has been lots of work in recent months. This has all been captured in a fantastic timelapse video covering the activity so far between August-December 2016.
