A haven for terminally-ill children and their families
Community project supports Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice in London
24,068 sq ft GIA (2,236 sqm GIA)
Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice needed a state-of-the-art residential development for six terminally-ill children where they could stay with their families. So, our Project Management and Planning teams helped to make the dream a reality.
How we worked together
This is a great example of projects that play such an important role in society
We worked with the architects and construction teams to deliver a new accommodation block, including special activity and sensory rooms, offices and outside space for the children to play.
The consultancy team worked either at reduced or no fees and much of the material for the build was donated by industry partners.
Our team worked closely with the local authority to put together a compelling case to secure planning permission. We also ensured we had the resources available to work to a tight schedule and budget, while delivering a fantastic facility that will make a real difference.
Two years on and the hospice in London, is nearing completion.
Andrew Renshaw, JLL Board Member and Chair of the Building a Better Tomorrow sustainability programme – our commitment to help tackle pressing environmental and societal issues - said: “The opportunity to support Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice, on a project as rewarding and fulfilling as this, was a privilege.
“The Planning and Project Development Services teams at JLL have long been part of the hospice’s community and worked closely with the Noah’s Ark team to design and build the state-of-the-art hospice facility.
“This is a great example of how we can support community projects that play such an important role in society.”
This commitment was reflected in the project being recognised by the New London Architecture Awards 2018 – Wellness Award – winner in the Unbuilt category.
At the official opening of the hospice, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan described the Ark as a “beacon of light for the children and families it serves…..and has been built by the community for the community; a fantastic example of what can be achieved when Londoners work together.”
Our team have helped create a building that will provide parents and families with space to reflect and recharge and give the children some great play space and shared experiences.
