Work Begins on the Ulster Hospital

Dowds Group are proud to be working alongside the South Eastern Health & Social Care Trust on the Theatre 8 Project. This project involves the strip out and reconfiguration of the existing Endoscopy Suite to provide the new Theatre 8 and associated procedure rooms.

The works will begin with building demolition works along with the removal of redundant mechanical and electrical services. All work on this project will be carried out in a live hospital environment which requires extra care and attention.

The SE Trust have worked closely with Dowds Group in the implementation of an access and segregation strategy to help provide additional protection to the hospital staff and patients during the current Covid-19 crisis. We have also put in place additional measures to further protect our Site Teams from Covid-19.

Remaining works will include internal drainage connections, structural support works, floor leveling, formation of new partition walls, decoration and finishes, new internal doors and screens, new mechanical and electrical systems, provision for new fixed furniture and provision of new flooring and new ceilings throughout.

Our Build Department is growing from strength to strength with every project they take on. They are a one stop shop as such with our build team providing not only the build side of the project but also the M&E aspect also. Our clients are only having to deal with one point of contact throughout the project, and they are guaranteed the quality that we offer from the start right through to the finish. We have had great feedback from our build clients and can only hope that the success of our build department continues to grow.

We are looking forward to taking on this challenging project at the Ulster Hospital and aim for completion at the beginning of February 2021.
