About this building
The Octav Botnar Wing was built thanks to generous charitable support, forming the first stage of our redevelopment programme in 2006. This modern facility provides an uplifting environment for patients. The Harris International Patient Centre is a state-of-the-art unit where we care for international and private children with complex and rare conditions. There are further wards in Kingfisher and Sky Wards and operating theatres. The building also has The Friendship Garden on its roof, which was built in memory of two GOSH colleagues who were killed in the terrorist attacks on the 7th July 2005.

Display Energy Certificate
Since 9 January 2013 public buildings in the UK over 500m2 have been required to display a Display Energy Certificate (DEC) prominently at all times. Display Energy Certificates were introduced by the Government in response to the EU Energy Performance of Buildings Directive which all EU member states were required to implement by January 2009.
DECs are designed to promote the improvement of the energy performance of buildings. They are based upon the actual energy performance of a building and increase transparency about the energy efficiency of public buildings. DECs use a scale from A to G with A being the most efficient and G the least. The Display Energy Certificate for Octav Botnar Wing is available here or by clicking the plaque on the right.
