AWW was appointed to develop a new Urgent Care Centre (UCC) facility for the University Teaching Hospital Lewisham to improve its primary care, accident and emergency services. AWW worked with the hospital to re-plan five wards and medical facilities whilst maintaining the Emergency Department. Adjacent to the Heritage buildings that denote the Hospital’s main entrance, the new centre was designed in planar glass, metal panelling and deep overhanging eaves to give effective canopies to the doorways whilst remaining sympathetic to the existing buildings.
Having recently had a tour of the new the facilities, I found them to be extremely impressive. This is just the latest in a long line of improvements at the Trust, and the hospital has really benefited from a major investment programme in recent years.
