Commissioned by RCSI and with a long standing relationship with the educational organisation, Axiseng continues to lead the mechanical and electrical services design for multiple projects within their campuses.
Anatomy Storage & Embalming Suites Refurbishment Project: Full refurbishment of the existing basement level facility, including provision of 61 refrigerated cadaver storage units, including 9 obese units and specimen cabinet. The embalming area includes a new body-hoist, downdraught embalming table, chemical storage facilities and dissecting tables. The works also included provision of changing facilities, and modifications to the existing transport lift to facilitate transport trolley movement to the ground floor Anatomy laboratory above. Detailed design co-ordination of the building services installations was required in order to maximise the working space within the area. Reduced headroom at basement level also limited the design options for services distribution. The project was successfully completed within a restricted 14-week period to allow the new term to commence in September.
Biomedical Research Facility Refurbishment Project: Refurbishment of Biomedical labs in a ‘live’ environment. The laboratories were designed under the direction of Nick Plesnila for research and development of pharmaceutical products for the treatment of neurological injuries and defects.
