Jersey-based CIOB Chartered Building Company ROK has entered into a joint venture with Spanish-based FCC Construcción to build Our Hospital Project (OHP) on the Channel Island.
The project is in a pre-construction phase until March 2022. The site at Overdale (pictured) has been approved as the preferred location for the new hospital and community consultations have taken place.
Design will start on 1 March. Construction is expected to last four years to be followed by a post-construction period of around three years.
The OHP will provide Jersey with a fully integrated, 21st century healthcare facility. The overall aim is to deliver a facility that will be an integral part of the local community and will give patients greater choice, access and provision of quality and efficient services and enhance the overall health and wellbeing of the local people.
The OHP is committed to linking every opportunity presented by this project into the needs of the local community and is focused on creating social, economic, health and environmental benefits that will have a positive impact and leave a lasting legacy for the Island.
