74 Bed Extension Sacred Heart Nursing Home

Client: HSE West

Project Description: This large scale project consisted of the demolition of 2 No. wards blocks and associated link corridors and the construction of a  2 storey Community Nursing Unit with 74 beds. The kitchen, laundry and waste compounds to the rear of the unit were also refurbished with the construction of a new medical gas and vacuum enclosure with generator. The mechanical and electrical services for the new 2 storey building was  connected to the existing power and heat circuits over the roof of the existing single storey structures. The Unit remained live and fully operational throughout the works which  included some out of hours work to ensure that ongoing activities were not affected throughout the construction period.

The development also included the provision of two lifts, mechanical and electrical installations; internal alterations to the kitchen and laundry; modifications to the existing perimeter road to the east of the site; reduction in car parking spaces located between the two wards at the south east of the site from 31 to 18 spaces; alterations to existing site services (water supply and foul and surface water drainage) and provision of Sustainable Urban Drainage systems; associated hard and soft landscaping; and all other associated site excavation and site development works above and below ground.

The Nursing Home Unit included full fit out prior to handover to the Client.
