Construction of a new state-of-the -art Radiation Oncology Centre on the grounds of University Hospital Galway
Our works comprised the construction of new radiotherapy treatment facilities and associated site works. The site was previously occupied by the Adult Mental Health Unit (AMHU) and the link to the Paediatric Unit. These buildings were demolished under a separate enabling works contract to allow construction of the Radiotherapy Oncology development.
The works comprised the construction of a three-storey Radiation Oncology Centre of approximately 8,340m² gross floor area, including a deep plan atrium, administration areas, entrance, reception and waiting area, bunkers for six linear accelerators (two of which were shelled out) and support accommodation, a Brachytherapy suite, two CT simulator suites, a shelled out area for a future MRI suite and a 390m² ground floor single storey enclosed link connecting to the existing single storey link corridor at the north of the site, along with associated alterations to existing buildings and site works.
All works were carried out on a busy operational acute hospital campus. Hospital activities remained fully operational at all times during the works and rigorous infection control protocols, to minimise the creation and spread of dust, were strictly adhered to.
