A new maternity hospital comprising 5 patient wards with 144 in-patient bed spaces, a 12 station birthing suite, 3 operating theatres, a 50 cot neo-natal unit, a day services department, a consultants’ and administrative suite and an education and research centre
Floor area 17,000 m² (182,986 ft²)
This large-scale project establishes a new public face to the hospital.
The innovative form of the building facilitated linkage back to existing buildings at one vertex of the curved triangular plan while maintaining views out from adjacent existing wards.
Construction involved integrating a large complex building on a live hospital campus with connections to live buildings at a number of levels. The practice was also commissioned by the HSE and UCC to design the Anu Research Centre, on the top level of the hospital. The project involved extensive laboratory fit-outs with annexed office and teaching spaces.
