OOBE and Ryder Architecture are part of the Miller hps team designing a new £12m pathology centre on the QEH Gateshead site. The former QEH hospital laundry facility will provide the main structure in this part refurbishment and part new build project. OOBE have developed the external landscape to tie into the existing site, retaining existing trees where possible whilst improving access for all to the new centre.
Transformation from laundry facility to pathology centre of excellence
The design needed to carefully consider the current operation of the site to ensure disturbance is kept to a minimum during construction.
