Elliott Group joined in a Joint Venture with GEM Group to form GEMElliott Construction Ltd and won this project through a competitive tender process.
This project consisted of the construction of a new 75 Bed Ward Block as an extension to the existing live acute University Hospital Galway. All works that interfaced with the hospital were carried out under method statements and work permits. There were over 200 method statements issued on this project. We used an LOD 350 BIM model to coordinate the services even though it was not a contractual requirement. All M& E systems were agreed upon via technical submittal process. Workshops were held on all critical systems with the hospital maintenance and end-user staff. Technical submitted on all packages on the project in order to ensure compliance with the works requirements. A sample/mock-up room was constructed at the start of the project in order to agree on details, which was one of the key reasons we achieved a very high-quality finish on the project.
This project is a fine example of our ability to work with many different stakeholders in a live acute hospital campus and successfully deliver an A2 BER building to the highest HTM compliant standards.
