This project comprised the demolition of a large former factory premises on a 4 acre site in Dublin 5 and construction of a new part 2/part 3 storey Nursing Home providing 149 bedrooms. The design for the new facility, whilst optimising bedroom capacity, had to respect the proximity of nearby dwellings and a church. The development also included 47 apartments designed specifically for the elderly which was in association with a Housing Association. The building’s design provides a modern non-institutional appearance with high levels of natural light and easy access to secure, quality landscaped gardens taking advantage of sites orientation. The building area is c. 8,600 sqm and includes all welfare and support facilities with space and room standards all meeting HIQA criteria.
