Demolition of the existing building; new 80 bed nursing home for the elderly; new modern 35 apartment senior living development.

Fellows Add Value:

The Fellows team were appointed to work as Employer’s Agent and Cost Manager for the demolition and refurbishment of the historical Christchurch Hospital. This project demanded extensive in-depth market testing in order to moderate risk and facilitate best value of the key components for this complex project.

Further more, several financial options were provided to evaluate the cost impact of sequencing the works whilst minimising disruption to the day to day running of the hospital.
