RPS planners have advised on the development of a €284m adult public hospital in Dublin’s inner city.

The new nine storey, 55,000 square metres hospital building is located on a brownfield site which features protected structures. It will be the national centre for cardiac surgery, heart and lung transplants, spinal injuries and life support services and will contain state-of-the art facilities including 12 new operating theatres, 120 one bed en suite rooms, new emergency and out patients departments and a 444-space underground car park. It will be the greenest and most technologically driven hospital in Ireland upon completion.

RPS was responsible for coordinating and producing a number of sequential planning applications, including a successful first party appeal relating to development contribution conditions. RPS also gave evidence on behalf of the hospital at the Oral Hearing for the Metro-North Railway Order Project. RPS provides ongoing planning advice to the hospital and is overseeing a final wrap-up planning application relating to internal and external amendments to the hospital building which has required Strategic Infrastructure Development pre-application consultations with An Bord Pleanála in order to determine that planning application can be made directly to Dublin City Council.
