Building Awards: Jersey Nightingale Hospital

Published 10th October 2022

J3 Ltd received recognition in the ‘Proud to Help’ category of the 2020 Building Awards for overseeing the incredible effort that saw the Jersey Nightingale Hospital built in record time.

The prestigious annual awards are the industry’s longest running recognition of excellence, celebrating exemplary design and construction across the industry. The ‘Proud to Help’ category was created to recognise outstanding efforts in supporting the industry through the Covid 19 pandemic.

The Jersey General Hospital Nightingale Wing, delivered by J3 Ltd as a joint venture between local company Garenne Group, Sir Robert McAlpine and FES, was completed just four weeks after being given the green light to begin construction.

The new £14.4 million temporary hospital is built on Millbrook Playing Field in Jersey, Channel Islands, and was specifically designed by NBBJ architects to provide 180 beds for Coronavirus patients with access to acute, enhanced and ongoing levels of medical care, including oxygen provision.

At 130 m by 40 m, the facility comprises six wards, each with 30 beds, as well as areas for patient admissions and discharge, staff changing and rest, Xray, equipment storage, laundry and a morgue.

Helping to complete this lightning fast project, Waterman’s team worked round the clock to deliver the structural, foul drainage and foundation designs, also providing detailed geotechnical surveys for the new facility.
