Design and Build Contractor - MTX
RBC have worked on numerous projects with modular healthcare specialist MTX, throughout England and Wales, to create fast delivery ward space, clinical department extensions and additional operating theatres. The above project provided a new endoscopy unit and twin operating theatres for the hospital and was completed on site in under four months.
RBC have been appointed by John Simpson Architects to provide full Building Control services for the prestigious commission to redesign the Royal College of Music in South Kensington. The project is valued at £25 million and will transform the Grade II Listed Building. The project involves basement, sub-basement, lower ground, first and second floor extensions in a former courtyard that links part of the Royal College of Music together and form a new museum, bar, cafes, two new theatres and practice rooms. The effects on the existing fire compartmentation and means of escape needed careful consideration and justification and RBC have worked closely with the Architects, JSA, and the Fire Engineer to achieve this.
