BCU architecture graduate helps build London’s Nightingale Hospital

An Architecture graduate from Birmingham City University has helped design and build the NHS Nightingale Hospital in London’s ExCeL Centre.

Alumnus Jordon Lambert supported the design of the hospital, which was built to help expand NHS capacity to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

In short: 

Jordon Lambert said: “Having the design, construction and clinical team working in-house ensured that issues could be identified and resolved in a much more efficient workflow, allowing decisions to be made rapidly. I believe this to be a huge kudos to the construction industry as a whole – it can achieve great things when everyone truly collaborates towards the same goal.

“The team, both at BDP and as a whole, has been incredible. With a mutual understanding of what we were working towards, the team has rolled their sleeves up and put in crazy hours of work to provide the best possible facility for the incredible NHS staff on the frontline.

“As an architect, being part of this huge collective effort to provide these tools for the NHS to better fight this thing, will hands down be the most important project of my career and an experience that I am extremely honoured and proud to have worked on.”
