Tallaght University Hospital Cookstown, Co Dublin Client: HSE Estates Services: Design, Project Management

Sensitively phased project delivered in a live hospital environment.

The project comprised extensions and alterations to an acute hospital, carried out in a particularly sensitive area. The extension to the Adult and Paediatric Emergency Departments at Tallaght University Hospital provides resuscitation and additional treatment bays, and the reconfiguration of the department to provide areas for triage/assessment, minor injuries, major injuries, clinical decision unit and associated support facilities.

The Emergency Departments continued to operate full time and the works were arranged in phases to allow for this. The phasing and access arrangements were developed in close consultation with the Hospital Technical Services, Management and Emergency Department Clinical staff.

The project minimized costs for site services and external works.

MCA and the design team interrogated the outline concept designs and proposed layout for the Tallaght Hospital extension, including layout, form and footprint and integration within the site minimizing costs for site services and external works.
