18 Dec McCue Secures Second Ulster Hospital Contract
MCCUE Crafted Fit has been recommissioned as fit out contractor for the new Acute Services Block at the Ulster Hospital in Belfast. The company has been subcontracted by Graham BAM Construction to provide bespoke interiors and fit out for 126 bathrooms for the project, which is due to begin in March 2018.
This is the second project at the Ulster Hospital for McCue who was previously contracted to fit out 288 bespoke bathrooms within the Phase B Inpatient Ward Block, as part of a £261 million pound investment that was completed in April 2017.
Les McCracken, Managing Director of McCue said, “We are delighted to be recommissioned as fit-out contractor for the new Acute Services Block at the Ulster Hospital in Belfast. This is a fantastic project for us and we are incredibly excited to supply the Ulster Hospital again with the finest infection control materials on the market.
“We will be using the ‘Corian’ solid surface material for the walls and surfaces of the bathrooms, because of its hygienic properties in addition to its durability. The product is thermoformed, with no seams or joints, allowing for tighter infection control with the proper upkeep and maintenance. This will be along with our bespoke joinery and other works.”
With over 60 years’ industry experience, Carrickfergus based McCue Crafted Fit specialises in high quality refurbishment and fitting out, in addition to offering bespoke joinery services to a wide range of customers in varying sectors.
Les continued, “This product is on the cutting edge of hospital infection control and McCue is a certified network-approved provider of Corian in Northern Ireland. The applications for this material are endless, with some customers even requesting the material to be used in their kitchens and bathrooms.
“It is important for us at McCue to be at the forefront of technology, offering the most up-to-date products and services to our clients. The Ulster Hospital redevelopment is one such project and we are glad we are playing our part in transforming the health sector in Northern Ireland and making it fit for purpose for the 21st Century.”
