BAM has been awarded a build-only contract for the new children’s hospital project at St James’s Hospital Campus site in Dublin. The contract value is approximately €600 million. The construction of the new children’s hospital is expected to take four years.
Full planning permission for the hospital, the two Paediatric Outpatients and Urgent Care Centres, a Children’s Research and Innovation Centre and a 53-unit family accommodation centre was granted in April 2016. A comprehensive tendering process followed, which was recently completed with the selection of BAM Building Ltd.
The 12-acre site on the St James’s Hospital campus has been fully cleared and is now ready for the laying of foundations of what will be one of the biggest buildings in Ireland. The new hospital will include over 6,150 rooms, 4 acres of outdoor gardens and external space and 380 individual inpatient rooms each having their own en-suite and a bed for parents to sleep near their sick child.
