Jubb assisted St Wilfrid’s Hospice in the construction of a new 18 bed hospice facility to replace and update their existing asset. The
hospice was constructed on a new site and the existing site demolished and prepared for disposal.
The new Hospice is made up of four buildings designed to separate the different services on offer, making it easier for patients and relatives to navigate. These will be linked together by glazed corridors with views onto the courtyard garden. The four buildings will be:
- The Stables – our Inpatient ward
- The Granary – our community services
- The Sussex Barn – our Day Hospice and support services
- The Hay Loft – all our essential support services
The design has taken inspiration from the local surroundings, with the main buildings grouped to look like a converted farm complex; incorporating materials such as flint work, oak boarding, Siga Spanish Slate, Redland Old Hollow clay roof tiles, Hanbury Burmarsh handmade clay tiles and curved Kalzip standing seam roofing.
Jubb provided civil and structural advice on the planning and construction of the new facility which was delivered in conjunction with Kier as well as advice on the planning and disposal of the existing site.
