Lessons learnt and insights from the team that delivered Jersey General Hospital Nightingale Wing

Blueprint for Project Speed

Jersey General Hospital Nightingale Wing, was delivered by J3 Ltd – a joint venture between Garenne Construction Group, Sir Robert McAlpine and FES.Completed just four weeks after being given the green light, NBBJ architects’-design scheme was the only new facility built under the Nightingale scheme. At 130 metres by 40 metres, the facility provides six wards, each with 30 beds, as well as areas for patient admissions and discharge, staff changing and rest, X-ray, equipment storage, laundry and a morgue. Waterman Group provided Structural, Civil, Highways and Geotechnical Engineering services. Pivotal to the success of the project was the client team, whose collaborative and supportive approach became a vital ingredient that enabled the healthcare facility to be delivered on budget and to programme.
