GBHP and the South Eastern Trust Celebrate Topping Out of Ulster Hospital’s Acute Services Block

Ulster Hospital’s new £95 million Acute Services Block, the largest live healthcare project in Ireland, has celebrated its topping out with the last piece of the structure being placed at the top of the building. Led by the GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership, a joint venture between GRAHAM Construction and BAM, 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 sq m 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.

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.”

The GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership was appointed to the Trust’s four-year, construction framework in 2013, and has already completed work on phase B2 of the hospital’s £261 million redevelopment programme, the Inpatient Ward Block, which took the ‘Overall Award’ at the 2017 Construction Excellence Awards.

GRAHAM Construction is part of the GRAHAM Group, one of the UK and Ireland’s leading construction, asset management and project investment businesses. In 2017, the company increased its turnover to £565 million and was named ‘Major Contractor of the Year’ at the annual Building Awards in London.
