Medical Assessment Unit (MAU) Bantry Hospital


Works were carried out in a fully live acute hospital environment at Bantry General Hospital. The construction was carried out minimsing disruption to services. Due to the live hospital environment, management of dust control, risks of aspergillosis and liasing with infection control were all highlighted as key items to be prioritised throughout the project.

The extension is constructed using reinforced concrete construction. Particular items of note in this project were: the use of flat slab construction at roof level of this single storey extension. This design decision was made to facilitate a proposed first floor level to be constructed subsequently as a separate project.

The project also required structural works to the existing ward block to tie-in the new extension to the hospital complex including design of new opes. Civil design works to extend the drainage & foul sewer systems were also carried out following a site survey. Due to the topography of the site, a new RC retaining wall was required and designed by Crocon.
