Sod cut ceremony marks the start of construction at Lisburn PCCC!

On Monday 24th June, Dowds Group were thrilled to attend the sod cutting ceremony for the new Lisburn Primary and Community Care Centre in which we will be carrying out the M&E works.

This new £40M centre will be located at the site of the city’s Lagan Valley Hospital and is anticipated will open in Autumn 2021. At almost 13,000sqm the new facility will bring together eight GP practices and enable the Trust to provide an integrated model for both primary and secondary care on the Lagan Valley site – a one stop location for the health and social care needs of the local population.

The new hub will improve early intervention, bring services closer to the patients’ home and help to reduce hospital admissions. The attention to detail in design of the building will meet modern accessibility standards to ensure patient privacy and dignity, and will provide a high standard of clinical accommodation for generations to come.

The involvement of Dowds Group in the Lisburn scheme confirms their position in leading the field for the delivery of Mechanical and Electrical services in healthcare projects in Northern Ireland.
