Wellington Hospital

Wellington Platinum Healthcare facility forms part of Wellington Hospital in St Johns Wood, London.   Formally an office block, the existing building was extensively renovated to form a high spec,  six storey  including a basement  day-care facility.  The development  included operating theatres and recovery areas to the 4th and 5th floors, Consultation rooms from 1st  to 3rd  floors, Café, reception and support facilities to ground floor and full CAT scan and X-ray facilities to the basement area (formerly the office car-park).

AIS were actively involved in this complex design proposal and successfully assimilated Hospital Technical Memorandum requirements into a mixed occupancy day care facility to meet Client, Building  Regulations and Fire Authority requirements.

Emirates Air Line

The Emirates Air Line is the UK’s first urban cable car with a capacity to carry up to 2,500 passengers per hour in each direction via 32 cable cars.  It is a vital part of the regeneration of east London,  providing a much needed Thames  river crossing connecting North Greenwich to the Royal Docks and access to all the visitor attractions. 

The development involved construction of two cable car station terminals Greenwich Penisula and Royal Docks and three new steel uniquely designed towers. The inside of these unique  towers are a complex helix like structure which has been specially designed to provide the strength and stability needed to transport thousands of passengers every hour.

Tottenham Court Road Station Upgrade

A complete upgrade of the station to accommodate the new Elizabeth Line and improve access. The works include the construction of a new, larger ticket hall, additional escalators and new access to the new entrances Northern and Central line platforms to reduce congestion as well as a public plaza outside the Centre Point tower.

A major feature within Tottenham Court Road Station is the iconic 1984 mosaic designs by the late Eduardo Paolozzi. The Paolozzi mosaics are part of TfL’s heritage and they have kept and restored 95% of the mosaics in the their original locations throughout the station.
