The overall aim of the Phase 5 Project is the development of a state of the art facility to provide a leading centre of excellence for the diagnosis, treatment and care of ear, nose, throat, dental and oral diseases and head and neck cancers in both adults and children.

The Project

The Phase 5 project for UCLH will integrate all outpatient services from the Royal National Throat Nose & Ear Hospital and the Eastman Dental Hospital & Head & Neck cancer services. The new building is situated along the Eastern End of Huntley Street, adjacent to the Gordon Mansions and Capper Street. The site sits within a conservation area. The new building would form part of the overall UCLH masterplan to create a medical campus which will be linked by a proposed pedestrianised street along Huntley Street.

Our works are a combination of off-site prefabrication and on-site handset brickwork. We are building into Techrete panels near Scunthrope, which are then driven over 200 miles to site in London. The brickwork panels not only withstand the vehicle journey, but also withstand a 1.6kN wind loading. Swift Brickwork Contractors Limited has developed this process using cutting edge construction with adhesive mortars & installation techniques not seen before in the UK.
