The National Children’s Hospital Satellite Centre at Tallaght University Hospital won the coveted 'Healthcare Project of the Year Award' at the Irish Building and Design Awards on Friday, 7 October 2022.
The award recognises the efforts of the National Paediatric Hospital Development Board (NPHDB) and the design team in delivering a healthcare facility that provides optimal experiences for patients, visitors and staff. The design team included ROD, COADY Architects, HLM Architects and BAM as contractor.
The 4,600m² facility was designed and built to comply with the highest standards in terms of construction, sustainability and health. ROD provided civil and structural engineering design services on the project. Our involvement extended from the concept design phase through preparation of the strategic infrastructure development (SID) application to An Bord Pleanála, followed by tender and construction.
The Irish Building and Design Awards honour projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, creativity and excellence in building and design. The short-list for the ‘Project of the Year’ award included four very fine projects, namely, the National Forensic Mental Health Service, Portrane; OptiLux at the Hermitage Clinic, Lucan; the new mortuary and postmortem building at University Hospital Waterford; and Cork ARC Cancer Support House.
