The Stokes Centre for Urology

Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Project Name: Urology Centre

Location: Royal Surrey County Hospital

Value: £4m

Principal Consultants: ADP Architects, Clarke Bond, CBG

Project Duration: 75 weeks

A cutting edge Urology Centre has been developed on site at Royal Surrey County Hospital to provide specialist and world leading urology and cancer services to patients locally and from across the South of England.

The new building is two storey in height, spans 1600m2 and is connected to the main hospital via a link building. The centre provides:

  • A procedure room
  • Two minor procedure rooms
  • Recovery area
  • Consulting rooms
  • Staff administration space
  • Seminar and lecture room
  • Private consultation offices
  • Other ancillary spaces such as clinical facilities, storage and utilities

The building was constructed using concrete pad foundations and retaining walls, steel frame, beam and block floor and pre-cast concrete planks inclusive of concrete structural toppings. Externally, the building features white rendered walls and a copper coloured protective rain screen cladding system to the curvature of the building.

We had to close part of the internal access road around the hospital estate to enable construction, yet maintain continuity of moment for vehicles. We worked closely with our client to provide a logistical traffic management plan that ensured the continued operation and daily function of the hospital throughout the construction period.

We also worked with the client to relocate departments in adjacent buildings prior to the works starting. This included logistical moves to relocate the audiology department to ensure that patients would not be effected by noisy works.
