This facility consists of a six-storey block over two levels of basement car parking. A new twelve-bed intensive care unit is located on the first floor. Level two accommodates a fourteen-bed high dependency unit; level three a sixteen-bed coronary care unit and level four a cardiology unit including two cardiac catherisations laboratories, associated nine-bed day ward and a non invasive investigations department. The clinical facilities include a total of nineteen full isolation rooms designed to meet exacting modern infection control standards. Also included are a shell at the ground level for future expansion and 277 surface car parking spaces located to the south-east of the hospital campus. The entire fifth floor is reserved entirely for engineering plant along with a section of the basement at Level -1. The ventilation design scheme includes for a total of 33 air handling units.

This critical care unit reached substantial completion in October 2012 and levels three & four have become live since January 2013 with levels one & two became operational in early 2013 meaning the facility is now fully operational.

An extension to the contract has also been issued for the design and construction of an emergency department shell & core as an extension to the critical care unit.

The critical care unit is located within the confined site of the Mid-West Regional Hospital (MWRH) in County Limerick, Ireland, thus requiring careful planning to ensure safety of patients, staff, the public and contractors’ staff and allowing the services provided by Hospital to be fully maintained throughout the construction of the critical care facility

We provided the Client with an experienced project management & cost management team who has past experience & knowledge of working on the MWRH site and working closely with the HSE.

Using AECOM’s extensive experience and knowledge of the public procurement process through our appointment by the Department of Finance to write a number of the key guidance notes for the Capital Works Management Framework (CWMF) and external training of public sector Clients. This allowed us to guide the project through the procurement process and give the right advise to the HSE at the appropriate time.

The integration of the of all end users was a significant challenge to overcome, in addition to the extensive briefing required with End Users, to ensure sign-off at various stages as design progressed as not to cause delay to the D&B Contractor. AECOM managed and co-ordinated input and briefing from all stakeholders through a Stakeholder Management Process enabling a structured management of expectations from all sides within the required time.
