Craigavon Area Hospital
About this project
Craigavon Area Hospital, St Luke’s Hospital, Armagh and South Tyrone Hospital in Dungannon provide a wide range of acute inpatient services and outpatients services in the mid Ulster area of Northern Ireland.
We were selected as principal contractor to undertake works at each hospital. This required supply, delivery, testing and commissioning of the centralisation of the critical alarms systems, the modification of existing fire/ intruder alarm systems, hospital telephone systems and new telephone equipment.
We were also responsible for alterations to medical gas control systems, and disabled refuge call alarms, M&E installation services and all minor builder works associated with the refurbishment of reception areas at Craigavon Area Hospital, St Luke’s and South Tyrone Hospital.
We worked in collaboration with all hospital personnel in each location to successfully complete these projects concurrently within all three facilities.
