Description:

Walls Construction was engaged by Carechoice as the design and build contractor for their new nursing home in North County Dublin. Carechoice purchased an existing concrete frame that was originally proposed as an apartment development. Walls Construction in association with Carechoice redesigned the building as an 8,000m2, 5 storey, 165 bed Northern Cross nursing home.

The works involved the completion of an existing concrete frame with the internal design and fit-out being constructed to comply with HIQA standards throughout. The building comprises a RC structure with precast floor slabs and an external façade incorporating brick, render and punch windows. External landscaping involved paved areas with wheelchair access to a peaceful garden.
