University Hospital Limerick, Critical Care Unit

Kevin was the design lead for this design and build competition winning scheme. Kevin initially worked as Director of Murray O'Laoire Associates and subsequently working directly for O'Connell Mahon Architects. The project comprises a Critical Care Unit at the Mid Western Regional Hospital Limerick and was completed in 2012 and is the most advanced critical care facility in Ireland. The development which links to the existing hospital consists of a six storey block over two levels of basement car parking. A new 12 bed Intensive Care Unit is located on the first floor. Level 2 accommodates a 16 bed High Dependency Unit, Level 3 a 16 bed Coronary Care Unit and Level 4 a Cardiology Unit including two Cardiac Catheterisations Laboratories with associated 9 bed day ward and a non invasive investigations department. The clinical facilities include a total of 19 full isolation rooms designed to meet exacting modern infections control standards.

The project also included a shell at level 0 for future expansion and 277 surface car parking spaces on the south east corner of the site.
