Construction of a Link Bridge Building at University Hospital. Cork City
Construction of a New Link Bridge Building at Cork University Hospital, Cork City
Client:Health Service Executive (HSE)
Cumnor Construction Ltd. carried out the role of Works Contractor and PSCS for this project.
The works were carried out under the GCCC Public Works Form of Contract for Minor Building and Civil Engineering Works designed by the Employer.
The contract involved the construction of a new link bridge corridor in two phases at first floor level. The work was carried out within a busy, active, live acute hospital and therefore a high level of care was necessary to ensure the safety of the patients, staff and members of the general public.
The building remained fully open and live directly below the works. Noise restrictions were in place as the works were being carried out directly above theatre rooms and patient rooms. There was a requirement for the installation of new specialised mechanical and electrical equipment.
