Elliott Group VHI

In recent weeks, the Elliott Group completed the handover of a new five-floor VHI 360 health centre in Carrickmines, Dublin, which has now opened its doors to customers.

The project

The project comprised demolition and alteration works along with the complete fit-out of the building, and the Elliott Group VHI project team worked over 150,000 man-hours, managing pandemic challenges without a single incident or Covid case.

The quality achieved on the project is evident in the professional services now available in the medical facility. The Elliott Group team successfully planned and implemented the installation of the MRI diagnostic machine, x-ray, DEXA, orthopaedics, dentistry, paediatrics and physio departments.


Faraday cage

The 5,405-sq-metre project also included a Faraday cage and lead lining for diagnostic imaging rooms, basement works to adjust existing carpark to include additional spaces, clinical waste disposal and generator area with an additional lift core across the five floors.

At roof level, existing plant enclosures were extended by 49 sq metres, while the main entrance of the building was modified to accommodate ambulance access.

Project achievements

In 2021, the Elliott site team were awarded the Certificate of Excellence from the Considerate Constructors Scheme for continued high standards, and the project has been shortlisted in the Fitout category for the Irish Construction Excellence Awards 2022.

Project team

Gary O’Sullivan, Construction Director, Elliott Group, says there was a strong project team on the development.

“Elliott Group would like to thank the VHI for entrusting them with the delivery of this project,” commented Garry O Sullivan. ”I also want to acknowledge the work of FESP, Moloney O’Beirne, ARUP, JV Tierney, Brendan Merry and Partners, all of whom we worked closely with to ensure the successful delivery of this project.”
