Avanti Architects newest addition to the £261m redevelopment programme at Ulster Hospital in Belfast is a state-of-the-art Chemotherapy Unit with Macmillan Cancer Support and The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust. The New Chemotherapy Unit sits at the heart of the Ulster Hospital development and will also house a Macmillan Information and Support Centre to deliver the latest Chemotherapy and Support Services.
The project comprises a major refurbishment of the existing 1960s building to create a modern non-clinical space together with a new build rooftop extension that will provide a relaxing, therapeutic environment for patients, visitors and staff.
The refurbished area accommodates a new entrance with double height atrium, feature stair, main reception, waiting area, pharmacy, assessment & triage cluster and administration.
The new build roof extension on level 2 is mainly occupied by the Chemotherapy Treatment area and provides a purpose-built quality environment, which benefits from good daylight provision and pleasant views out over landscaped terraces and the surrounding countryside. Level 2 also houses the new Macmillan Information and Support Area.
Architecturally the new roof extension sits comfortably with the existing building. The vertical emphasis and spacing of the façade mullions provide a homogenous curtain wall screen that unifies the new elevations in a complementary manner that will not detract or compete with the language of the older elements of the building.
The project provides a striking new facility which dramatically enhances the quality of cancer care in the area within & is due to be fully operational in the summer of 2020.
