High Dependency Unit, Beaumont Hospital


Project Price: 5.2m

Project Area: 1,500sqm

Contracting Authority: Beaumont Hospital

Project Year: 2009

The new MAU and HDU block is a three storey Modular building served by a plantroom at roof level. Situated in the centre of a courtyard, the building is connected to the existing Hospital circulation core with a three storey link corridor. The shape of the building has been generated by the requirement to allow a fire appliance to circumvent the building whilst also ensuring that there is sufficient space between the new and existing accommodation for natural ventilation and daylight purposes. Isolation Rooms are provided at each floor level and the intention was to provide flexible accommodation to meet current Hospital requirements.
