Royal Victoria Hospital - Non-Clinical Building


Royal Victoria Hospital - Non-Clinical Building


The Non Clinical Support Building (NCSB) is one of a number of enabling and construction projects deisgned to rationalise the RVH Estate to provide a footprint for the proposed new Royal  Belfast Hospital for Sick Children.  The site of the proposed new Non Clinical Support Building will occupy the site of the original Estates Office Building which was demolished in the spring of 2016.

The Non Clinical Support Building will provide a new Receipt and Distribution Centre to support the New Children’s Hospital. It will also facilitate an extension of the underground service tunnels at Level 0 for the delivery of goods and waste management along with new  accommodation for Estates Services.
