Flowing from our earlier masterplan and Outline Business Case, we were successful bidders with Costain under the ‘Procure 21’ form of procurement to deliver a new mortuary at St Peter’s Hospital.

The OBC scheme was developed into a three-storey solution which exploited the topography of the site and created flexible space at the uppermost level. The building incorporates public viewing facilities as well as “state of the art” post mortem and body storage facilities.

The public entrance is contained within a semi-circular drum, which features large openings cut into the face of the wall. The building is finished in an off-white self-coloured render.
