Rapid improvement: Jarvis has reached financial close on the £30m first phase of the redevelopment of Whittington hospital in north London. This is the first acute health services PFI scheme for Jarvis and involves the design, construction and maintenance for 30 years of a range of clinical services from critical care to day care. The design, by SEF architects, includes a new main entrance and central mall. Jarvis is the contractor, with HOK International as executive architect, Alan Conisbee and Associates as structural engineer and SVM as services engineer.
