Project Overview

The completed project provides a 120 bedroom nursing home, administration offices and a convent in an 8,000sqm new build (Phase 1) plus 5,000sqm of refurbished accommodation (Phase 2).

The design provides for a safe, comfortable environment for residents and respects their right to privacy, dignity and independence. The design required a sensitive approach to provide a comfortable and delightful home environment for residents and their visitors, comply with all HIQA standards and support efficient management of the care provided by staff.

The project successfully integrates with the existing building and surrounding landscape. Household groups are clustered around dining and living room facilities with support areas to provide a greater sense of home and community. All bedrooms are single occupancy with ensuite bathrooms, with generous windows for good daylight and external aspect.
