HLM Architects’ design for the Altnagelvin Hospital North Wing has been shortlisted for the AJ Architecture Awards 2022 in the category ‘Health and Wellbeing’.

Earlier this year, the scheme was awarded a coveted RSUA (Royal Society of Ulster Architects) award, and was exhibited at the RIAI (Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland) Conference, 2021.

Now in their fifth year, the awards celebrate the best in UK architectural design across seventeen categories.

Designed by HLM’s Healthcare team and led by our Belfast Studio, Altnagelvin North Wing is a major redevelopment project that was organised over several carefully considered phases to minimise disruption to the existing operational hospital. While it was originally due to finish in June 2020, elements of the project were brought forward to cope with the rising demand for hospital space during the pandemic. This included the ward accommodation of 72 beds, which was fast tracked and handed over three months ahead of schedule.

Earlier this year, the scheme was awarded a coveted RSUA (Royal Society of Ulster Architects) award, and was exhibited at the RIAI (Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland) Conference, 2021.

Belfast Studio Director, Nicola McKay, said:

“I am absolutely delighted and extremely proud that Altnagelvin North Wing has been shortlisted for the AJ Architecture Award – Health and Wellbeing Project. It is a meaningful recognition for the immense effort by the whole team to deliver such and exceptional quality building.”

Winners will be revealed at a celebratory event in London on 23rd November – we’re looking forward to an excellent evening!
