Workplace Nursery Queen Mary's Hospital

Working in conjunction with Hazle McCormack Young (Architects) and The Norman Bromley Partnership (Mechanical & Electrical Consultants), this was a challenging project awarded by Queen Mary's Hospital Trust for the construction of a Workplace Nursery in 32 weeks.

This structure is based on a segmental steel frame comprising straight members, blocks, compound taper cuts and a lot of calculations were used to create the curve seen in the photographs. High performance glazing was used throughout the building to provide a pleasing and naturally lit interior.

The construction of this building concentrated the minds of all those involved, even on the simplest of tasks (eg. Fitting doors, windows) due to the curves
throughout the building and intersections with different angled surfaces.

The Nursery also included a variety of different materials and finishes to provide the appearance required by the Client and the professional team;

Cedar shingles - roof
Sto rendered panels
Velfac windows
Child safe play surfaces
Multiple floor finishes in each of the children's areas, creating contrasting textures and colours
Child safe play surfaces
