New Children’s Hospital – 10.5MW of Cooling
Making the impossible, possible!
The New Children’s Hospital (NCH) is taking shape, the concrete frame has now reached it’s highest level – the seventh storey. The NCH project has achieved many phenomenal feats of construction and engineering including our recently delivered 10.5MW of cooling – equivalent to 3,000 domestic fridges. The site was awarded a BREEAM Excellent Rating in Design. It is one of only a small number of hospitals in the world to have achieved this rating for sustainability.
The NCH project comprises the main hospital on the shared campus at St James’s and two paediatric outpatient and urgent care centres CHI at Connolly, Blanchardstown, and CHI at Tallaght.
As well as playing a central role in the provision of acute paediatric healthcare services, the New Children’s Hospital will be the primary centre for paediatric education, training, and research in Ireland. It will be a child-centred, world-class facility that will support innovation and excellence in paediatric healthcare, and create an environment that is supportive of children, young people, their families, and the hospital’s staff.
