The newly completed Inpatient Ward Block at Ulster hospital features as the first case study in the March/April issue of Perspective magazine, the official publication of the Royal Society of Ulster Architects.
Wayne Hazlett of Perspective magazine explores many positive design features of the 30,000m2 building and concludes, “It is generally accepted that well-designed buildings can add to patient care and recovery and it is pleasing to see that in these times of austerity, the emphasis on architecture remains”
Associate Director Andrew McKeown provides the Architect’s account of the project and explains the wider hospital masterplan, which is being delivered in stages to allow the hospital to remain in use. A new acute services block of similar size is already underway and is due for completion in 2019.
