£1m final touch for hospital build

MCCUE Crafted Fit is putting £1 million of final touches to the redevelopment of the Ulster Hospital, after having been subcontracted by Graham- Bam Healthcare Partnership (GBHP) to fit-out the bespoke bathrooms using cutting-edge solid surface materials.

The company is providing bespoke interiors for the unique 288 single room layout for the new £200 million Phase B Inpatient Ward Block.

Two years on, with work nearing completion on the construction of the ensuites, McCue is in the process of completing the fitting-out.

“This is a fantastic project for us to be involved with in Northern Ireland and we are incredibly excited to be supplying GBHP and the Ulster Hospital with the finest infection control materials on the market as well as utilising our great joinery and workmanship,” said MD Les McCracken.

“The en suite bathroom furniture is custom-made. We are using the latest ‘Corian’ solid surface material for the walls and surfaces of the bathrooms, because of its hygienic properties in addition to its durability. This product is thermoformed, with no seams or joints, allowing for tighter infection control with also proper upkeep and maintenance.”

With more than 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.

“This product is on the cutting edge of hospital infection control, and we are a certified network-approved provider of Corian and a similar product, HI-MACS, 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,” Mr McCracken added.
