The fact that the Mid Group has been confirmed as Project Manager for the redevelopment of the ‘Brighton 3Ts’ is excellent news.
Work on stage one of the three-stage project began at the start of 2016 at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and the Mid Group will be working on the project for the next nine years.
With the majority of the space now clear, construction of the stage 1 building can begin – with Mid Group managing the project. This building is due for completion in 2020, with the helideck due to be ready next year. That will allow the air ambulance to land at the hospital rather than in East Brighton Park as it does currently.
Mid Contracting and Consulting are supporting the Trust and Turner and Townsend in managing the delivery of the redevelopment by the main contractor, Laing O’Rourke.
Stephen Chudley, 3Ts Project Manager and Design Management and BIM Lead for Mid Group said: “After many years working on the scheme I’m excited to be assisting the Trust and Turner and Townsend with delivery of this complex scheme at a critical point in the project.”
Andrew Shepherd, Deputy Group CEO of the Mid Group said: “Mid Contracting and Consulting’s expert knowledge of major healthcare projects, BIM and offsite solutions is vital to the successful delivery of a complex, multi-phased project such as Brighton 3Ts. We are delighted to be actively supporting the Trust and Turner and Townsend in the delivery of a world class healthcare facility.”
Inspectors visited the site twice last month to inspect the plans for the Brighton 3Ts, with the go-ahead now given for the exciting project.
Sahel Majali currently acts as Chairman and CEO of the MID Group, and overseas all of the organisation’s current projects both in the UK and abroad.
