Modular M&S Store at Whipps Cross Hospital – Waltham Forest, London
Waltham Forest, London
Bowman Riley designed a modular 200m2 retail unit to be occupied by M&S Simply Food store at Whipps Cross Hospital in Waltham Forest, London.
Based on the success of previous M&S retail units on hospital sites in Plymouth and Derriford, we worked with leading modular manufacturer, Catfoss to deliver the new retail unit to offer increased food and beverage options for patients, staff and visitors. The new facility also brings much needed additional revenue to the hospital.
Our brief was to support the project through the process of conception to installation. We submitted the Planning application and liaised with the planners to gain approval for the scheme before initiating discussions with the approved building regulation inspector. We co-ordinated plans with Barts Health NHS Trust officials and M&S, on behalf of the modular manufacturer.
Adjacent to the maternity ward, it was crucial for the construction works to be considerate of the live hospital environment during the short on-site phase. The works were completed on time and minimised disruption to the operations of the hospital.
