Shortlist Announced for Guy’s & St. Thomas’ East Wing Cladding Competition

The shortlisted teams for the next stage in the competition for the re-cladding of a 13-storey tower building on the St Thomas’ Hospital site in central London have been announced. The shortlisted architect/contractor teams are:

  • Allford Hall Monaghan Morris/Galliford Try
  • David Morley Architects/Laing O’Rourke Construction Ltd
  • Denton Corker Marshall/Josef Gartner & Co UK Ltd
  • Grimshaw/Geoffrey Osborne Ltd
  • Hopkins Architects Ltd/ISG InteriorExterior plc
  • Penoyre & Prasad/BAM Construction

The East Wing building has a significant presence on the London skyline and the competition seeks a re-cladding design of exemplary quality befitting its prominent location within the city. The judging panel chose architect/contractor teams who had demonstrated the capacity and imagination to design and deliver a scheme that would symbolically enhance Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust’s reputation for healthcare provision and its landmark status in London.


The teams have until the beginning of August to come up with their design concepts, and a winner is expected to be announced later in the year.
