Hospital scheme moves forward through pre-construction agreement

Tuesday 20 March 10:44

The States of Jersey has selected J3 Limited as pre-construction partner for the ongoing project to develop Jersey’s new hospital.

J3 is a joint venture between leading UK building and civil engineering contractor Sir Robert McAlpine, Channel Islands construction company Garenne Construction Group, and infrastructure, support services and facilities management business FES Group. The partnership with the States of Jersey involves the signing of a pre-construction service agreement, which followed a competitive tender process.

The new hospital has secured political approval to be built on the site of the current hospital, in St Helier, and £466 million funding has also been approved. The project team intends to submit an outline planning application in April and to begin work on site by the end of 2018.

The Minister for Infrastructure, Deputy Eddie Noel, said: "We are beginning what I believe is a very exciting partnership with J3, working with three family-run businesses which have extensive experience in working on major projects of this type. We will be combining the unparalleled local knowledge of the Garenne Construction Group, the engineering expertise of FES Group and the international construction expertise of Sir Robert McAlpine."

Jersey's new hospital will have 288 inpatient beds and a range of support services and outpatient clinics. The first clinical areas in the 50,000 square-metre hospital are due to open in 2022 and the hospital is anticipated to be fully operational by 2024, with the project complete by 2026.

The pre-construction service agreement will cover work in a number of different areas, including:

  • Managing the detailed design
  • Calculating the target cost and programme
  • Planning the site logistics, establishing the supply chain and resources and ensuring the incorporation of modern methods of construction

Sir Robert McAlpine Executive Partner Hector McAlpine said: “This is a tremendously exciting project and one which is of great importance to the people of Jersey. The complementary skills and expertise the members of the J3 joint venture bring to this scheme, along with the collaborative ethos established to date, provide a great foundation for success. We look forward to building strong relationships with the States of Jersey and the local community as the scheme progresses.”#
