:At 143 metres, one of the tallest hospital towers in the world has been re-clad to solve constructional problems typical in commercial as well as civic buildings of the late sixties and early seventies. As well as optimising energy efficiency and lowering running costs, the solution proposed by Penoyre & Prasad with Arup has given this iconic building a distinct new profile befitting the national significance of the NHS and symbolises a resurgent London neighbourhood. The brief asked for innovative quality and cost effective solutions to address the structural, fenestration and energy issues of the Tower, restore it to its former glory and make it fit for purpose for the next 30 years.
