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.


Expert help

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

Team work and collaboration were absolutely vital on this project and our thanks to all our partners involved including Callaghan Engineering, ORHTHenry 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.

McKeon Bros have worked on many projects in the past that had a really positive impact on their communities and we are very proud to have stepped up again and played a major role in getting the Steeples Primary Care Centre in Clondalkin to where it is today.

The facility will be vital to the area in order to support the HSE and the community at this time. It was an incredible team effort with our partners UHPC, Portal Architects, Contrail Fitout, Hickey Electrical Services and JV Tierney & Co. Consulting Engineers

A huge thanks to our own team led by Pat Lawless who pulled out all the stops in order to reach the very tight deadline whilst maintaining the highest standards.

Steeples PHCC is just one of a number of Primary Health Care Centres that have been fast tracked to support the HSE in their fight against Covid-19.
