As part of the ongoing 3Ts redevelopment project at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, works have begun to move the hospital’s chapel, which currently resides in the oldest acute ward building in the NHS; dating back to 1828.
The Grade II listed chapel closed its doors in its current location on Sunday May 9, 2021, enabling the careful process of dismantling its interior to begin. The chapel’s stonework, windows, memorial plaques and wood panelling will all be transferred to the new location. The move to a new purpose-built space in the scheme’s Stage 1 building will take approximately 18 months to complete.
The 3Ts scheme seeks to modernise the Royal Sussex County Hospital site in Brighton and deliver a modern, clinically- and academically-leading University teaching hospital. Split over three stages, the redevelopment will deliver a regional centre for teaching, trauma and tertiary care and will see the replacement of all buildings at the front of the hospital site with two new clinical facilities and a new logistics yard.
Once complete, the 3Ts project will provide a modern, fit-for-purpose environment for more than 40 wards and departments, caring for patients from across Brighton and Hove, Sussex and the wider region.
McBains is providing project management, cost management, technical advisor and NEC supervisor services to the 3Ts project.
