Mater Adult Hospital
Mater Campus Development Ltd.
RPS planners 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 is the national centre for cardiac surgery, heart and lung transplants, spinal injuries and life support services. The project opened on a phased basis in April 2012, included a new emergency department, operating theatres, intensive care unit, radiology and 120 single en-suite rooms in a nine storey building. This realises a significant component of the National Development Plan and is Ireland’s greenest and most technologically driven hospital development.
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 provides ongoing planning advice to the hospital.
