Paediatric and Ward Block, Colchester Hospital

Colchester Hospital University Foundation NHS Trust

The new building is an extension to the existing hospital and provides Paediatric Outpatients, Day Care Unit, Paediatric Ward, Elective Care Centre and Surgical Ward.

Innovations & Added Value
A key feature of the design was an unconventional layout for the four bed bays which provides a window to each bed space and results in the deep articulation of the facades. The urgent timescales required the use of modular buildings. Based on Tangram's design, the new building was procured through Yorkon as Principle Supplier.

"The extreme limitations of the available area, its proximity to the main hospital entrance and the varied style of previous development on the site demanded an expert at design to achieve a development which was both functionally satisfactory, and of a high standard of design, both internally and externally.

Tangram achieved all these in a style which both blends in but at the same time lifts the overall ambience of the site.The extremely tight design programme was met, and the solution achieved efficient space use sensibly arranged with the benefit of each bed having its own window to control daylight and views out.

Tangram's help and support for the users and clients was exemplary throughout, foreseeing issues and offering solutions before they became serious. Working with Tangram achieved a successful development in a thoroughly professional, but enjoyable relationship."
