Since 2010, Camerons have been involved as Main Contractor in the development of its existing Hospice facilities in order to prepare for the expected increase in the number of people needing palliative care in the coming years because of changing demographics.
The first phase was a new building housing a 12 bedroom In-Patient Unit, incorporating a chapel, a chapel of rest, additional rooms and facilities for the Hospice Community and Community Bereavement Service teams; a much improved laundry and an extensive basement.
The next phase completed was the opening of the King Centre with day care facilities, coffee shop and meeting/ training rooms.
The final phase of the redevelopment programme comprised the refurbishment of the original Jersey Hospice Care and was completed in April 2014. As part of this work, ,the former Day Hospice lounge was redesigned to provide a physiotherapy suite. Additionally, the gym and offices on the first floor were updated.
Throughout all phases of Construction, the team were dedicated to ensuring the works had a minimal disruptive effect on staff, visitors and patients at the facility.
This successful Team project was handed over to a happy client, on time and on budget at the end of April.
“The brief issued by Jersey Hospice Care to the Design Team was simple, to create a ‘total team environment’ in which everyone respected the Hospice’s environment and was sensitive to their daily needs.” Marc Burton, Managing Director
