Horizon Offsite finish steel framing works on UHL as main contractor Clancy prepares for handover within the next month
Over the past three months, members of the Horizon Team have been working with Clancy to rapidly deliver two major hospital projects in County Limerick in response to the coronavirus pandemic. On the grounds of University Hospital Limerick (UHL), one permanent new block is close to handover, consisting of 24 single, en-suite rooms.
The Limerick Leader newspaper reported on this project earlier this year in an article titled ‘Work begins on major hospital projects in Limerick to add capacity in response to pandemic’ .

Both projects involve Horizon Offsite structural rapid build steel frame system, which facilitated an earlier start to construction work, a more streamlined process than possible on traditional builds and a considerable reduction in programme. Given that the hospital remained fully operational throughout the build process, it was necessary to incorporate logistical solutions into the design in order to minimise truck movements and other disruptions to the hospital staff, patients and visitors.
The team here at Horizon Offsite have been photo-documenting the progress of both projects and you can look back at previously posted project updates, together with photo galleries and videos, here: https://horizonoffsite.ie/news/
