NI Hospice Project Almost Complete!
Excellent progress has been made at the new NI Hospice building at Somerton House, Belfast. Michael Nugent is providing Mechanical and Electrical services for this state-of-the-art facility, which is due to be finished soon.
For the last 30 years, NI Hospice has cared for thousands of terminally ill patients. As the demand for hospice services increased, the original Hospice building was no longer fit for purpose. As a result, a new Hospice building which would meet the needs of future generations was required.
Following detailed planning and wide consultation, Michael Nugent began work over a year ago on one of the biggest projects ever undertaken by a charity in NI. We are pleased to announce that excellent progress has been made, with the project is in its final stages, and is due to be completed by Spring 2016. The new Hospice in Belfast will fulfil the end of life care needs of the next generation and continue a legacy of Hospice care in Northern Ireland.
This high-tech building will be a warm and comfortable place, designed to care for people with complex care needs including those with non-malignant illnesses such as respiratory illnesses and dementia as well as cancer. The project involves the complete refurbishment of the existing hospice and construction of a large new facility. It will have 18 single en-suite rooms, peaceful gardens, an area designated for children and relatives, a sanctuary, and all with enough space for patients and families to spend time together. Most importantly, it will provide access to the best professional care that people need at this difficult time.
NI Hospice has helped thousands of people over the years and this impressive new development will dramatically increase their capacity to meet the needs of the terminally ill, both now and in the future.
