How we’re building The Ark

This is the amazing site where we will be building The Ark – North and Central London and Hertsmere’s only children’s hospice building. The Ark will take us around 18 months to build and we’ll be updating this page with images from our build cam as we progress so please do come back and visit us again soon to see how it’s going.

The great and the good of the construction industry have come together to support our charity in helping us to build The Ark. It will be North and Central London’s only children’s hospice building.

London’s property giants – including JLL UK, Pears Property, Sellar Property and Erith Demolition – have contributed hours of pro bono support for the construction of our vital children’s hospice. But it’s not just about building a building. We also need to fit it out with beds and furniture, doors and heaters, and a long list of other essential items where we’ve also been looking to reduce costs with the support of some fantastic companies. Our build partner 8build have also been engaging their Subcontractors to also get involved and help drive down the cost of the build and fit out our new hospice building.

North and Central London and Hertsmere are not served by a children’s hospice building; and the NHS doesn’t fund children’s hospice provision. But, thanks to community support over many years, Noah’s Ark is ready to start constructing just such a building.
