A Carrickfergus-based company has secured a second fit out project at the Ulster Hospital in Dundonald.

McCue Crafted Fit has been recommissioned for the new acute services block at the hospital.

The company has been sub-contracted by Graham BAM Construction to provide bespoke interiors for 126 bathrooms for the scheme, which is due to begin in March 2018.

McCue was previously contracted to fit out 288 bathrooms within the phase B inpatient ward block as part of a £261 million 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 of industry experience, the firm specialises in high quality refurbishment and fitting out, in addition to offering bespoke joinery services to 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. 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.”
