Construction of a BER A3 rated ambulance station building on a greenfield site on
the outskirts of Edenderry.
The ambulance base consists of a mixture of industrial type garage construction
and a separate administration/accommodation block. The garage area consists of
two sections. One entirely enclosed and a separate covered garage which is open
to the elements on three sides.
The administration and accommodation block include a manager’s office,
supervisor’s office, duty room with kitchen, a training room, staff changing room,
locker room with changing facilities, toilets and showers. It also requires ancillary
service rooms such as a sluice room, laundry, utility room, medical store rooms
and other store rooms.
The building structure will be composite steel frame and blockwork construction
with a pressed aluminium cladding panel finish. The roof construction will be a
steel framed mono-pitch roof with metal deck and a standing seam roof finish.
Windows will be triple glazed alu-clad or similar window system and doors.
The industrial garage construction will be the same structure & finishes as the
remainder of the building and will be large enough to house a single ambulance
and will include automated up and over sectional overhead entrance and exit
doors. The open covered garage will accommodate two ambulances with the roof
supported on cantilevered tapered steel beams.
Site works include an ambulance wash area, an underground LPG tank,
biocellular attenuation, a rainwater harvesting tank, enclosed back-up generator
and other electrical, gas, foul and surface water services installations.
