Ravenscourt Park Hospital, Hammersmith

Client: Telereal Trillium

Architect: SPARCC

Value: £60 million

A landmark redevelopment of a former Royal Masonic Hospital overlooking Ravenscourt Park, West London, the large Grade II* listed building with Art Deco architecture was constructed in 1933 on the circa 4-acre site. The project involves the sensitive restoration and conservation of the building to bring it back into use after many years of lying vacant, the landscape will be restored and enhanced with new public pedestrian routes connecting to the neighbourhood. Block A, the main entrance to the hospital, with its substantial hall and room will become a new cultural/community centre for a variety of uses such as exhibitions, talks, classes and meetings, there will also be a café in the foyer. The remainder of the existing building will be sensitively converted and extended to provide new homes. Two new buildings which will provide new homes and a 65-bed care home. There will be a basement car park accessed via car lifts and disabled parking at ground level.

Perega is providing civil and structural design services through RIBA stages 2-5 to support the development which will be achieved through a combination of demolition, remodelling, conversion and provision of new build. Our remit has included flood risk assessments, greenfield run off calculations and drainage designs from a civils perspective and existing structure and foundations assessments including beam reactions, floor loading calculations and basement impact assessments including ground movement from a structural point of view. We supported the planning and listed building consent application which was extremely complex due to the sensitivity of the building, as well contributing to the BREAAM assessment.
