Health Service Executive

RPS is providing civil and structural design services for a new 3,200m2 75 Bed Ward Block valued at €15m on the University Hospital Galway (UHG) campus.

This three storey structure was designed as a steel frame with proprietary metal ‘multidek’ floor system to create a flat slab.

The BIM team developed and co-ordinated an integrated structural BIM model for this project from which all tender and construction drawings and information were extracted. The BIM processes facilitated on-going design updates to be tracked by multiple designers, utilising this central BIM model.
