Expertise

The Blackrock Hospital and Clinic has been undergoing a managed programme of extension, refurbishment and upgrading in every department, all carried out in the live hospital environment under an STW masterplan.

The projects include Oncology, the design of a three-storey upward expansion on the main hospital block as well as Angiography, Phlebotomy, Cardiology, Physiotherapy, Mammography, MRI, Hybrid Theatres, CDU and ICU.

The project is a complex multi phase redevelopment of the Blackrock hospital. The client required increased capacity of ICU from 6 to 12 cubicles immediately adjacent to the live accident and emergency department, and update to latest HBN standards forming a new Administration, ICU and re-organisation for new A&E departments. The project presented many challenges including:

  • Control of noise dust and aspergillosis in areas adjoining the site which included oncology department.
  • Phasing of the works to minimise disruption to the hospital operations.
