South West London and St Georges NHS Trust

This project was completed at the Tolworth Hospital site for the trust and the purpose of the works were to create additional office and admin space for trust staff relocating from other buildings.

Theobald’s were initially awarded the Ground floor refurbishment and Gym refurbishment, but this also lead onto the West wing refurbishment following on from the ground floor and towards the end of 2021, the East wing and Woodroffe building were also completed.

The works throughout all of these areas included the extensive strip out off existing ward spaces, installation of new walls, flooring, suspended ceilings and refurbishment of shower rooms to make them suitable for staff use. Full redecorations throughout, new lighting,  power, fire alarm and data works to make the areas suitable for office use, as well as new washrooms throughout. The works also included various kitchenettes throughout the ground floor area, installation of ‘pods’ for staff to use for confidential phone calls/ meetings, as well as various ironmongery replacements throughout all areas, new doors and window repairs.

The gym refurbishment, although minor, included the refurbishment of an existing room within the Acacia block into a full functioning gym for patient use. Including newly refurbished shower rooms with anti ligature sanitaryware, new flooring throughout, new AC for the gym room itself, decorations throughout and new fixtures and fittings.

All of these works were completed over a 2 year period due to budget restraints, but each phase was completed on time
