Antrim Area Hospital
Posted May 4, 2016.
LOCATION: Rush Road, Antrim
CLIENT: Northern Health & Social Care Trust
MAIN CONTRACTOR: Killowen Contracts
COMPLETION DATE: Feb 2012
CONTRACT VALUE: £120k
The works included a new 6 bed ward for Ante-natal/pre-delivery care, Birthing Suite, Treatment Rooms, Nurses Station, Staff Training Room and DDA compliant wet room and sanitary facilities.
The project entailed internal demolitions, reconfiguration of existing bed space, installation of new floor, wall and ceiling finishes, and associated mechanical and electrical services in the maternity ward which was maintained as a live patient area for the duration of the contract.
Due to the complexity of the site and requirement of the ward space to remain fully operational at all times the work was completed under a phased programme which included out of hours working and decant arrangements with existing patients.
All works were fully coordinated in agreement with both estates management and ward staff in order to minimise disruption and ensure the health and safety of all patients.
