Complete re-design and refurbishment of an existing 3 storey brick building linked to the hospital. Previously housing convent sleeping accommodation, the new Educational Facility for the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland (RCSI) and the HSE consists of a new Library, Staff Changing Room, Common Room and Toilets on Ground Floor. A Large Lecture theatre and 2 Tutorial Rooms are located on 1st Floor and Administration offices together with 2 additional Tutorial Rooms, including a Clinical Tutorial function, are accommodated on the 2nd Floor.
Restrictive existing floor to ceiling heights lead to particular design attention to services distribution, ceiling design, acoustic design and lighting. The fabric of the building was upgraded to ensure optimal comfort and environmental conditions and a number of low energy features were introduced (solar panels, condensing boiler, low energy motor sensor lighting) to ensure an energy efficient facility.
