Case Study

Friars Bridge Court

Friars Bridge Court, London, is an asset held in the Long Lease Property Fund which is managed by abrdn. The building is in the process of being repurposed to provide centralised pathology services for Guy’s and St Thomas’ and Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts.

This will release existing hospital laboratory floorspace allowing the partner Trusts to repurpose this space for other clinical or NHS services. Environmental considerations have been integral to the construction process – 83% of the previous fit has been recycled, the EPC rating is scheduled to improve from the present “B” to an “A” rating, and the BREAAM score is likely to be “Outstanding”.

While two NHS Trusts will initially benefit from the shared pathology services, it is projected that many other hospitals, GP practices, community services, clinics and other healthcare organisations will take advantage of the industry leading expertise. Friars Bridge Court is expected to become the largest facility of its kind in Europe.
