The Health Service Executive (HSE) provides all of Ireland’s public health services in hospitals and communities across the country. The project located in Ballyfermot, Co. Dublin comprised of two single storey community nursing homes of approximately 5,000m2 constructed off site using system build technology for the health service organisation.
Axiseng partnered with Glenbeigh to design and implement the mechanical and electrical services in the nursing homes to fulfil the HSE community nursing unit requirements and to eliminate the spread of infection within the facility while providing an up-to-date high specification care units for seniors and high care dependency patients.
At the time of the design, the HSE had an urgent need for community nursing homes around the country.
Careful consideration was taken when designing the diversion of the existing services on site and integrating the new nursing units with the hospital campus electrical, fire alarm, nurse call and IT systems as all of the diversion and integrations of the new systems had to be carried out with minimum interruption to the operations of the hospital. The completed units provide a clean and comfortable facility for elderly inpatients.
