Fit-out contractor commissioned for new acute services block
McCue Crafted Fit has been recommissioned as fit-out contractor for the new acute services block at the Ulster Hospital in Belfast.
The company has been subcontracted by Graham BAM Construction to provide bespoke interiors and fit out for 126 bathrooms for the project, which is due to begin in March 2018.
This is the second scheme at the Ulster Hospital for McCue, which was previously contracted to fit out 288 bespoke bathrooms within the Phase B Inpatient Ward Block, as part of a £261m investment that was completed in April 2017.
Les McCracken, managing director of McCue, said: “We are delighted to be recommissioned as fit-out contractor for the new acute services block at the Ulster Hospital in Belfast.
“This is a fantastic project for us and we are incredibly excited to supply the Ulster Hospital again with the finest infection control materials on the market.
“We will be using the ‘Corian’ solid surface material for the walls and surfaces of the bathrooms, because of its hygienic properties in addition to its durability. The product is thermoformed, with no seams or joints, allowing for tighter infection control with the proper upkeep and maintenance. This will be fitted along with our bespoke joinery and other works.
“It is important for us to be at the forefront of technology, offering the most up-to-date products and services to our clients.
“The Ulster Hospital redevelopment is one such project and we are glad we are playing our part in transforming the health sector in Northern Ireland and making it fit for purpose for the 21st Century.”
