Building Better Healthcare Awards

22 September 2022

We are delighted to announce that the Ulster Hospital Acute Services Block has made it to the finalist stage of the Building Better Healthcare Awards 2022. The winners will be announced at the Building Better Healthcare Awards dinner event in London on 2nd November.

The completion of the new Acute Services Block, designed by Avanti in collaboration with Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects is a major milestone in the ongoing wider strategic plan for the eventual replacement of all outdated hospital buildings on the Ulster Hospital site. The new building successfully integrates into the existing hospital, connecting with the Critical Care Complex and the Inpatient Ward Block to create a compact inpatient and emergency core at the heart of the redeveloped hospital.We are proud of the exceptional design quality that has been achieved in this second phase of implementation of the Avanti masterplan following on from the Inpatient Ward Block. With 80% single rooms, generously internal courtyards and carefully designed interior providing a clutter free and relaxing patient environment, the project sets a new benchmark for major hospital project delivery in the UK.

Our team includes Kennedy Fitzgerald Architects, AECOM, Cundall, Baker Hicks, Gillespies, Capita Real Estate and Infrastructure with main contractor GrahamBam Healthcare Partnership.
