Six-storey extension within a live hospital campus

This six-storey extension and internal alterations, enabling works and associated services and site works were delivered at the University Hospital Limerick. The building accommodates the hospital canteen, a neurological centre, Inpatient Acute Stroke Unit, Inpatient and Outpatient Cystic Fibrosis Units, Specialist Breast Unit, and Dermatology Unit.

The project involved the undertaking of significant enabling works including the demolition of the hospital canteen, construction of temporary canteen facilities and a temporary car park. All of these works were carried out while the existing building continued to be occupied and operated as a fully functioning hospital.

Exacting standards in critical environments

The building includes a mix of In-patient and Out-patient facilities along with 10 isolation rooms each requiring individual mechanical ventilation and air pressure regimes. The design required extensive discussions with five different hospital departments to ascertain requirements and agree the schedule of accommodation and layouts.
