Royal Visit to New Papworth Hospital

4 May 2017

On Thursday 4 May 2017 we were delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester to see the progress being made on the construction of New Papworth Hospital.

Accompanied by Stephen Posey and Professor John Wallwork, the Duke and Duchess met with Skanska's Project Director, Kevin Kilcoyne, and Design Director, Martyn Flowers, to learn about the scale of the project and the progress made to date.

An architect by trade, The Duke of Gloucester was particularly keen to learn about the architectural design of the hospital and the lead architect for the project, Ian Fleetwood from HOK Architects, was on hand to answer questions.

We look forward to welcoming the Duke and Duchess back to New Papworth Hospital when we open next year.
