Members’ chance to tour Brighton hospital build site
The Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton is undergoing a £485m, nine-year programme to replace the buildings on the front of the main hospital site.
The three-stage programme – called the ‘3Ts Redevelopment’ to reflect the hospital’s role in teaching, trauma and tertiary care – will be complete by 2024.
CIOB members can take advantage of a site visit with lead contractor Laing O’Rourke to see the work underway as part of Stage 1, which began in 2016 and should be complete by winter 2020.
The Stage 1 Building (above) will replace the wards and departments of the Barry Building, which opened 20 years before Florence Nightingale started nursing and is England’s oldest inpatient ward block.
The visit is on 5 February. Details from Briony Milton at [email protected].
