General Hospital, Nottingham
A four hectare development in central Nottingham, the former General Hospital became surplus to requirements when services were moved to the Queen's Medical Centre and the City Hospital. Solving the problems of the site was an essential prerequisite to its successful sale. We identified the fundamental problem as the Trent Wing, an 11-storey 1970s built block that blighted the centre of the site.
The visionary plan secured £1m of European funding that proved the catalyst for a multi-faceted project involving conservation, urban regeneration and refurbishment of a collection of sophisticated buildings.

The visionary plan secured £1m of European funding that proved the catalyst for a multi-faceted project involving conservation, urban regeneration and refurbishment of some fine buildings.
We produced a visionary masterplan that proposed demolition of the Trent Wing and the creation of a new public arena in its place, which revealed fine listed buildings occupying other parts of the site.
Following the acceptance of the plan by the council, we carried out the demolitions, infrastructure, and the construction of the arena for the health authority, revealing the site’s true potential.
The process led to a successful sale and the site now contains a mix of new and refurbished buildings occupied by offices, apartments, houses, a hotel, restaurants and bars designed by a variety of architects.
