Local firm GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership has been appointed to deliver Ulster Hospital’s new £95 million Acute Services Block – currently the largest live healthcare project in Ireland.

GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership, is a joint venture between GRAHAM Construction and BAM and was appointed by the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust.

The Acute Services Block is part of the Trust’s wider redevelopment plan for the Belfast hospital, replacing the outdated existing main ward block and other specialist acute services within the wider hospital estate.

This building will sit adjacent to a new £86 million ward facility presently being constructed by GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership on the same complex, scheduled to complete in autumn this year

The GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership was appointed to the four year, £185 million construction framework in 2013.

Peter Reavey, Director, at GRAHAM-BAM Healthcare Partnership said: “This is a state-of-the-art building designed to provide specialist care at the highest level, from operating and post-operative care facilities to high tech containment laboratories.

“We will be drawing on our strong track-record of delivering world-class medical facilities as we prepare to start the 39-month construction programme, which is expected to complete in summer 2019.

“We look forward to working closely with the Trust and delivering this important facility for the area.”
