The Nightingale Hospital Exeter – Design and Build




The NHS Nightingale Hospital Exeter is part of the national response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This 116 bed NHS nightingale Hospital was designed and delivered in only 57 days!

In this webinar the team discuss the challenges they faced in this project as they worked collaboratively on site to resolve issues as they emerged. They talk about the speed of construction, site restrictions and availability of materials.

NHS Nightingale Exeter received its first COVID-19 patients in November 2020.

The flexibility of the scheme has been proven with the centre being used for cancer screening due to a reduction in COVID-19 cases during Summer 2020.

Decision Making and Leadership

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
