Proposals to refurbish the exterior of SE1's tallest building - Guy's Tower at Guy's Hospital - have moved a step closer with the appointment of architects and project managers to carry out a feasibility study.

Plans for Guy’s Tower revamp move closer

Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust has appointed Arup, in partnership with architects Penoyre and Prasad, to carry out a feasibility study for the external refurbishment of the 34-storey Guy's Tower.

NHS bosses believe that 34 years after completion Guy's Tower remains the tallest hospital in the world at 143 metres high.

"The tower is a prominent landmark on the London skyline and this project presents an opportunity to make a statement of excellence, not only to patients and staff at the Trust, but to London as a whole," says Marc Ralph from the hospital trust.

The feasibility study, structural investigations and survey works will take approximately six months to complete.

Arup's Mike Durtnall added: "Arup and Penoyre & Prasad are delighted to have been given the opportunity to make a significant contribution, both to the renewal of one of London's most famous healthcare landmarks and to the exciting regeneration of the wider London Bridge district."
