Project summary

Recognised as one of the first PFI procured healthcare schemes in the UK, we undertook a comprehensive DBFO project for the creation of a modern Renal Dialysis Unit at Belfast City Hospital. With a capital value of £3m, the 40-station unit, covering 1930m2, accommodates 265 haemodialysis and 49 peritoneal dialysis patients. Completed in October 1999, our patient focused programme incorporated the supply, installation and renewal of all of the dialysis equipment, plus the supply of renal dialysis consumables. As part of the Public Private Partnership, we also assumed 15-year responsibility for the delivery of hard planned, reactive maintenance and lifecycle management services at the acute hospital.

The detail

With financial close agreed in December 1997, construction of this state-of-the-art Renal Dialysis Unit was completed less than two years later in October 1999. A modern, flexible 40-station treatment space was created across an expansive building footprint of 1930m2, the design of which was influenced by the medical practitioners who would be operating this important facility on a daily basis. We subsequently assumed responsibility for the operation and maintenance of the Unit in November 1999 up until the completion of the PPP agreement in November 2013. Managed by a dedicated Facilities Manager, our experienced team delivered all planned and reactive building fabric, mechanical and electrical maintenance services plus air quality monitoring, Legionella risk assessment and lifecycle replacement services.
