The contractor will carry out improvement to electrical distribution and ventilation, as well as structural and building works at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich. 

It has worked with clinicians, the estates team and the facilities management provider at the hospital to develop an 80-week programme of works to support Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust’s “business as usual” policy which aims to avoid structural alterations to the hospital impacting clinical delivery. 

McLaren is working with subcontractor Dowds Group on the job, which is set to complete in June 2024.
