Project summary

We have the privilege of revolutionising the care of more than 6000 women who have their babies delivered by the Royal Jubilee Maternity Service each year, through the construction of a new maternity unit within the Royal Victoria Hospital. Delivered as part of the GRAHAM-BAM Partnership, the project, which is valued at c£57m, and expected for completion in October 2021, involves the construction of a new Maternity Hospital and a connecting link corridor to the new unit of the existing Hospital.

The detail

Based on a 202-week programme, the construction of the new Maternity Hospital represents the future of maternity care for Belfast. Built adjacent to the existing Maternity Hospital, it will provide a welcoming and uplifting environment that will ensure the safety of mothers and babies - from those without complications to those who require additional services and support.

The first phase of the project, over a three-period, will involve the construction of the new Maternity Hospital. A six-month decantation period will then facilitate the seamless transition from the old building into the new, state-of-the-art complex before a six-month programme will enable the demolition of the old building and the construction of a two-storey elevated link to the main Hospital.

The £57m project will support the creation of a new Midwife Led Unit, which will have en-suite rooms, each with birthing pools. Delivery suites, obstetric theatres and a neonatal intensive care unit, all based on one floor to allow easy access between one another, are additional facets of this ambitious scheme.
