Macmillan Cancer Centre Ulster Hospital
APS is delighted to have been involved in the new state-of-art Chemotherapy Unit for McMillan Cancer at the Ulster Hospital. The new unit sits at the heart of the Ulster Hospital and is part of a £261 million redevelopment program by the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust. The project has seen the modernisation of the 1960s building with a major new floor extension added to the rooftop. The additional floor has a fully glazed façade perimeter as the exterior walls to create a relaxing and therapeutic environment for patients and visitors, capturing amazing views over the Castlereagh Hills and beyond.
The external façade was created using our ACW Logic50 curtain walling. The profiles are white internally, with our extra deep 100mm cap fitted externally to mullions and transoms. The scheme was designed so the transom and mullion caps have a 50mm shadow gap between and the transom is continuous around the full façade perimeter. Another additional detail to this unique project by Whittaker & Watt Architects.
The project also includes our AP200Therm+ insulated polyamide doors, which lead to a peaceful roof garden area. APS are enthralled to work with the team at Whittaker & Watt on another of their impressive projects and congratulations to everyone involved
