Led by the GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership, the Acute Services Block is part of the South-Eastern Health and Social Care Trust’s wider redevelopment plan for the Ulster Hospital, Dundonald.

The eight-storey, 31,000 sqm building incorporates specialist wards, support services, assessment unit, inpatient imaging department, and a new emergency department. The scheme has been designed to achieve BREEAM Excellent and uses flat slab construction to integrate the structure with its services and the clinical spaces. The building’s high thermal mass reduces operational running costs and the delivery of the structural and acoustic solutions will further support the healthcare services.

Delivering world-class medical facilities

Peter Reavey, Director, at GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership said: “This topping out is an important construction milestone, showing how well the new facility is progressing. We remain on track to deliver this important facility for the Trust to the highest quality. Drawing on our experience of delivering world-class medical facilities, we will ensure that this building will push the boundaries of design and functionality in order to deliver the highest quality of care to patients.”
