Capital Developments - Ulster Hospital, Phase B
The Ulster Hospital is undergoing extensive redevelopment to build state of the art facilities that will help us transform patient care for the 21st century.
On the 12th June 2013 Minister Edwin Poots cut the first sod to mark the beginning of construction on the new Phase B Inpatient Ward Block, which has attracted £232 million of investment.
The Inpatient Ward Block will be located at the rear of the Hospital site near the multi storey carpark. It has been designed to the highest building and infection control standards by AVANTI and Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects and will be built by Graham BAM Construction.
The seven storey building will provide 12 inpatient wards comprising 288 bedrooms, each with private Ensuite. A key feature of the design will be the access to natural light and the amount of privacy afforded to each patient in their single rooms.
There’s also a hospital pharmacy to serve the wards, a Cardiac Cath Laboratory and a new Day Procedure Unit where patients will have the opportunity to have a broad range of procedures completed without having to stay in hospital overnight. The new facility will open to Patients in autumn 2016.
In January 2014 construction commenced on a new Acute Ward Block. Located to the west of the site, this second building will be linked to the Inpatient Ward Block and will provide Specialist wards, an Emergency Department, a 64 bed Clinical Assessment Unit and a new Imaging department providing a range of x-ray and diagnostic services.
Progress on this massive construction programme will be updated on this website from time to time so please check back to review the time lapse photography as the buildings go up.
