A vital new PCC building required in a fast growing town, that would bring together a number of services that had previously been located within Bray Civic Centre.
The initial plan for the development was to house a Primary Health Care Centre, as well as private practitioners, such as GPs, dentists and physiotherapists, a pharmacy, a café, meals-on-wheels and an old-folks meeting place.
The 5,000+ sqm facility is one of the biggest PCC built in recent years. The team was aiming for an A2 BER by maximising natural ventilation and using renewable technologies, such as air-source heat pumps, heat recovery and rainwater harvesting. In order to provide power to the various occupants, an on-site electrical substation was required.
In addition to the renewables, our mechanical installation consisted of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning), LPHW systems, BMS, Natural Gas and dental chair mechanical services.
Collen Construction turned to us for our experience in cutting-edge mechanical and electrical technologies, our proven ability to work effectively in difficult-to-access sites and our track record in meeting important deadlines. This was tested like never before when the project had to be fast-tracked in order to respond to the new demands on the HSE from Covid-19.
Team work and collaboration were absolutely vital on this project and our thanks to all our partners involved including Callaghan Engineering, ORHT, Henry J. Lyons , Clifton Scannell Emerson Associates, and Hickey Electrical. A special mention also to all our trusted sub-contractors including McCool’s, Kirwan Air, CMS, Boyne Ventilation, Daikin, Mark Eire, EICL and Medimec.
