Information about this scheme

Ballymena Health & Care Centre brings together a wide range of primary, intermediary, diagnostic and community health facilities. It is the largest project of its kind constructed to date in Northern Ireland under the PCCI procurement programme and as such has had a massive impact on the local community in the delivery of an integrated primary and community care provision. It provides a ‘one stop’ centre for assessment, treatment, care and the provision of information to the residents of Ballymena and the wider Northern Trust catchment area. Externally the building is dramatically defined by its saw-tooth roofline. Bronze anodised aluminium-clad timber windows provide a crisp contrasting element where the inside punches through the brick skin. Internally the building is oriented around the central triple-height atrium, providing a naturally-lit arrival and navigation space for patients, visitors and work teams.
