The Graham-Bam Healthcare Partnership (GBHP) has completed the new £85M inpatient ward block project at the Ulster Hospital in the UK.
The new project represents the initial phase of the extensive £261M Phase B Redevelopment Programme at the Ulster Hospital.
The seven-storey building, covering an area of 30,000sq m, features 12 inpatient wards comprising 288 ensuite bedrooms, a new day procedure unit including four operating theatres, and an endoscopy suite. The facility will also provide a new cardiac cath lab and pharmacy departments.
GBHP director Peter Reavey said: “We are delighted to have reached this significant milestone. Having commenced the project in 2013, through successful partnering with the Trust, the design team and our supply chain, we achieved close collaboration with all the necessary stakeholders.
“We feel that by this collaboration we have helped to deliver innovation, value and efficiency on one of the most prestigious healthcare framework projects in the UK and Ireland.
“We look forward to continuing to build on these relationships in the second phase of the Programme for the delivery of the new £95M Acute Services Block which, when complete in autumn 2019, will be adjacent to the completed IWB facility.”
