Well done to Down Developments and our team for handing over the Discharge Lounge at the refurbished Direct Assessment Unit at Antrim Area Hospital today in what was a challenging project in a live environment to a very tight programme. The contractor and our team were working right up to the last minute! By the end of this week 12 beds and 5 recliners will be available to meet Winter Pressures. Phase two will commence at Easter.

The office decamped to the North West on Monday as we visited our recent extension to the Ulster University Library on the Magee Campus followed by a visit to the Foyle Arena

Thanks to GLL for inviting us to the opening of their new gymnasium in Church Lane by Councillor Sonia Copeland, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Belfast. Our design has transformed a vacant retail unit into a state of the art facility with 110 work out stations, indoor cycle studio, PRAMA, fuctional area, free weights zone and cycle store. They play very good music from the DJ booth also!
