Work is part of Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital redevelopment
BMJ Architects has been given planning for a new biomedical engineering building at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in north London.
The £25 million scheme at Stanmore will cover 4,300sq m and was OK’d by planners at Harrow council.
It is being built for UCL and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust and will add facilities to develop and test new medical devices in partnership with their users.
Work on this scheme will start alongside a new inpatient building which will have 91 beds.
These first two phases – which will replace buildings dating back to the 1940s – are due to be completed by 2017.
