NHS seeks architect for hospital's Brutalist tower

  • Comment
The NHS is on the hunt for an architect to transform the infamous Brutalist tower of Guy's Hospital in London into an 'architecturally iconic' building.

Built in 1974, the 34-storey concrete landmark is thought to be the tallest hospital building in the world, at 143m high.

In an OJEU notice released last Friday, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust put out a call for a broad-based project management team which will be headed up by either an architect or project manager.

The notice says that the team will 'review and advise all works associated with the refurbishment of the external structure and facia cladding and fenestration of Guy's Tower at the Guy's Hospital.'

The works, the notice continues, would 'provide an architecturally iconic, structurally sound, sustainable and energy-efficient building compliant with current standards fit for the next 25-30 years'.

The contract, applications for which must be in by 19 October, is scheduled to start in December this year. Completion is pencilled in for November 2010.
