Client: Balfour Beatty
The University College London Hospital (UCLH) is a teaching hospital located on Euston Road in the Fitzrovia area of the London Borough of Camden. The hospital has 665 in-patient beds, 12 operating theatres and houses the largest single critical care unit in the NHS.
It is part of the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is closely associated with The University College London (UCL). A major new 75,822 m² hospital was opened in 2005, constructed by a partnership between AMEC, Balfour Beatty and Interserve under the Private Finance Initiative.
Construction took place in 2 phases; with the main hospital being complete by spring 2005 and the remaining facilities being finished in 2008. The state-of-the-art facility brings together all the NHS acute care facilities that are currently provided by The University College Hospital, The Middlesex Hospital, The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital and The Hospital for Tropical Diseases.
ICWM provided a complete waste management strategy on The University College London Hospital in what would be its first project for Balfour Beatty. This was implemented to control all wastes generated by the internal trades of the project and ICWM were tasked to segregate and remove all waste from site. Wheelie Bins were supplied and used to remove all waste from the floor plates by ICWM Operatives, with compaction collections peaking at 4 per day. This needed to be planned and executed with great detail, as the location of the project made it difficult to keep vehicles in a waiting area.
