Royal London Hospital

From Workstream Pulse, Winter 2015

The three mammoth Skanska-built towers of the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel Road, east London – two 17 storeys high (one of them crowned with a helipad) and the other 10 storeys – feature around 65,000 square metres of curtain walling between them. The frame comprises 175,000 tonnes of concrete, 11,000 tonnes of metal reinforcement and 1,750 tonnes of structural steelwork. Workstream provided a range of general trades and labour, CPCS and IPAF operators, fixing teams and technical staff to a number of firms working on the Royal London project, including Graham Wood Structural and Permasteelisa Group and its subcontractors.
