Sir Ludwig Guttman Health Centre

Queen Mary University London

Based in Stratford, the Sir Ludwig Guttman Health and Wellbeing Centre was originally constructed to provide medical facilities for the 2012 Olympic athletes.

Our brief was to reconfigure the top floor to provide a new 25 chair dental clinic.

The new facility offers medical students the opportunity to develop their dentistry skills in a highly equipped training environment.

The £1.8m project included substantial mechanical and electrical services together with environmental improvements to facilitate the fit out of the high specification dental facilities.

We worked closely with the architect Ansell & Bailey prior to contract commencement to develop a workable layout for the Centre that would not only function efficiently for students, but that was deliverable from a construction perspective.

We had to work closely with multiple stakeholders on this scheme. Alongside QMUL, we dealt with Barts Health Institute and NHS Property Services.

Professor Mike Curtis, Dean of Dentistry at Queen Mary, explained that it was a terrific achievement by all involved to develop the initial idea to place a new dental outreach centre on the Olympic Park into reality in such a short period of time. “Our staff and students and the local population will benefit enormously from these first rate facilities for dental education and care. Particular thanks are owed to the project team who led on the design and construction of the new clinic – an exceptional team effort with effective project management.”
