Summary

Roughan & O’Donovan is currently providing civil and structural engineering services for the development of 2 new paediatric outpatients and urgent care centres in Dublin.

Solution

With a total area of 10,000m², the 2 satellite centres will provide urgent care and secondary acute outpatient services, including rapid access general paediatric clinics.

While they benefit from separate entrances, both centres are fully integrated with the existing buildings on the Tallaght and Connolly hospital campuses.

The project is being delivered at Level 2 Building Information Modelling (BIM) – distinguished by collaborative working aligned with standardised information exchange, with all parties using their own 3D models.

Challenge

All the works are being carried out within live hospital campuses with deep drainage in close vicinity to the existing buildings.
