Practical Completion

Skanska has reached practical completion of its work for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity on the construction of The Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children.

Skanska was responsible for designing, building and fitting-out the Centre, which will bring together pioneering research and clinical care under one roof to drive forward new treatments and cures for children with rare and complex diseases. The building is also home to new outpatient facilities. The Zayed Centre for Research is a partnership between Great Ormond Street Hospital, University College London (UCL) and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

This is Skanska’s second scheme at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), supporting the world-renowned children’s hospital's vision of driving forward new treatments and cures.

Graham Ashley, Construction Director for Skanska, commented: “We are so proud to be involved in the creation of this important facility. Bringing patients, clinicians and scientists together in one place means that pioneering research into paediatric rare diseases can advance further and faster. It’s a great example of Skanska building what matters.”
