Officially designed under the Llewelyn Davies Yeang banner, the 30,000m² Mittal Children’s Medical Centre in central project has been hailed as the greenest hospital in the country.

Work starts on Yeang’s £300m Great Ormond Street extension

Eco-architect Ken Yeang’s first scheme in the UK, the £300 million extension to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH), has started construction

Officially designed under the Llewelyn Davies Yeang banner, the 30,000m² Mittal Children’s Medical Centre in central project is being hailed as the greenest hospital in the country. The scheme’s Neat assessment, the health sector’s equivalent of Breeam accreditation, has achieved an overall ‘excellent’ rating.

The new hospital redevelopment will provide all its own energy, aims to be carbon-free and even supply around 20 per cent green energy to other parts of the site.

Once complete the scheme, which houses new wards, operating theatres, imaging facilities, offices and family restaurant, will allow the hospital to treat an extra 20 per cent more sick children.

Bill McGill, GOSH director of redevelopment, said: ‘We believe this is as green as it is possible to get for a central London building. We have faced up to the challenges of the hospital’s location, got through stringent planning procedures and [are] ready to start building.’
