– Case Study
The Montefiore Hospital is a private hospital in Hove, part of the English coastal city of Brighton and Hove. It opened in November 2012 and is operated by Spire Healthcare, the second largest provider of private healthcare in the United Kingdom.
Renovations, which involved preserving the exterior features while removing all the old interior fittings and installing facilities such as operating theatres and consultation rooms were carried out by Nightingale Architects with oversight from the hospital’s director. The work received a “Best Refurbishment” award in the Acumen Commercial Property Awards held in Brighton in April 2012, at which the achievement of a “very good” BREEAM energy efficiency rating was noted.
