BAM Building, the Irish building subsidiary of Royal BAM Group, has bagged a €600m construction contract to build a new children’s hospital in Dublin, Ireland.
As per the terms of the build-only contract, the construction of the new children’s hospital is expected to be completed in four years.
In April 2016, the project received full planning consent for the hospital, two Paediatric Outpatients and Urgent Care Centres, a Children’s Research and Innovation Centre and a 53-unit family accommodation centre.
The 12-acre site on the St James’s Hospital campus has been completely cleared and is now ready for the laying of foundations, which is said to be one the largest public construction project in Ireland.
The new hospital will include more than 6,150 rooms, 4 acres of outdoor gardens and external space and 380 individual inpatient rooms. Each room will feature their own en-suite and a bed for parents to sleep near their sick child.
BAM Ireland’s ongoing building projects comprise a 49,000 sq m Hi-tech HQ Campus at Leopardstown, the Mill Street student accommodation, the extension to Glucksman Library at the University of Limerick and the 9,000 sq m of One Molesworth Street development.
