While non-essential construction activities remain shutdown, the team at Horizon Offsite are currently working on a number of essential and time-critical healthcare projects, including the delivery of Thurles Ambulatory Care Unit for the HSE, under main contractor Clancy Construction, with Reddy Architecture + Urbanism.

Clancy Construction, industry leaders in this space, were awarded a contract for the design and build of a 667m2 single storey unit for the HSE. Following on from the successful collaboration and handover of a number of similar projects since the start of the pandemic, the design team at Horizon Offsite proposed a unique rapid build to provide the superstructure.

Project Scope

The project scope for Thurles Ambulatory Care Unit was to deliver a 4-metre high, single storey structure with pitched mono roof structure, to upgrade the existing hospital facility during Covid-19 restrictions.  Given the scale and urgency of the pandemic, this project was designed to be delivered in an accelerated timescale. 

Process

From our recently-extended premises in Cahir, County Tipperary, the Horizon Offsite team designed and manufactured panelised, insulated, light gauge steel frame external walls with a cement board, ready for rendering on site, together with the internal walls and roof structure. This superstructure was sustainably designed and constructed with good quality, medical-grade construction to ensure NZEB compliance.

Proven Track Record

The HSE has recognised the speed, quality and inherent benefits of the fully-accredited Horizon Offsite building system and has engaged with Horizon Offsite on a wide range of projects in order to meet its rapid delivery schedules.
