UCL Neurology Centre – ISG
Campbell Associates have been appointed the Environmental Monitoring scheme and noise prediction modelling for the new UCL Neurology Centre. The development will be built on Gray’s Inn Road, previously home to Eastman Dental Hospital. The £8.5m two-stage design and build contract is led by ISG to relocate the dentistry in a new world-leading home – the Rockefeller Building.
The UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology has a world class reputation for neuroscience. Their mission is to translate neuroscience discovery research into treatments for patients with neurological diseases.
The new development is part of Transforming UCL, a £1.25 billion ten-year programme of investment in UCL’s estate to support the university’s continuing growth. Along with the new neurology centre in King’s Cross, the programme is seeing the creation of new world-class facilities in UCL’s Bloomsbury campus and the construction of UCL East, an entirely new campus in east London, adjacent to the Olympic Park.
The new site will provide a home to three world-leading organisations: the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology, the headquarters and UCL component of the UK Dementia Research Institute, and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
Bringing these three powerhouses together under one roof will create the leading translational neurology research centre in the world, delivering innovative new discoveries and translating these into treatments that improve the health of patients suffering with dementia and other neurological diseases.
ISG was in search for an easy & effective monitoring solution for noise, vibration & dust emission generated from their activity. They have found this in the Sonitus noise, AVA vibration & Aeroqual Dust monitor which prove to be uncomplicated and cost-effective solutions. A total of 16 monitors including an AQS-1 for additional NO2 and O3 monitoring have been installed onsite in December 2019, starting the first phase for monitoring ambient levels. Data collected is automatically uploaded to the Sonitus Cloud, giving instant access to real time data from any device. These monitors provide reliable, accurate measurements stored in real time, with trigger alerts when pre-set level are exceeded. Campbell Associates is proud to be part of this interesting project.
