ACEI Engineering Excellence Awards Nominations 2024

by | Mar 5, 2024

We at J V Tierney & Co. are thrilled to have been nominated for the Association of Consulting Engineers of Ireland (ACEI) 2024 Engineering Excellence Awards in the categories of Mechanical & Electrical – Large for the “Rock Wing” at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital (MMUH), and Sustainability – Built Environment for the Poplar Row Social Housing Development.

The Rock Wing is a new nine-storey building at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital. It is the new home for the National Isolation Unit, also designed by J V Tierney & Co., and houses ninety-eight new beds, including Isolation Room, ancillary accommodations such as nurses’ bases, Utility rooms, etc. Level 03 additionally includes sixteen new High Dependency Unit bedrooms that additionally serve as Isolation Rooms, and Level 06 houses another twenty High Dependency bedrooms. This new addition to the hospital will provide the capacity to cater for an additional 5,000 patients annually.

The Poplar Row Social Housing Development in Dublin is a six-storey, 39-unit social housing development located in central Dublin. This block consists of a mixture of one, two, and three bedroom units, alongside communal areas. This project achieved BER A ratings for all the apartments. The works included landlord services such as a roof-mounted solar PV Arrays and a mechanical smoke and heat extract ventilation system (SHEV). The project emphasises embodied carbon with a comprehensive Life Cycle Assessment carried out. Due to its central location, the development maximises public transport access, omitting car spaces for an eco-friendlier approach.

It was a privilege and pleasure to work alongside the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Scott Tallon Walker Architects for the Rock Wing, and to work with Sean Harrington Architects, Bartra and Ardstone Capital Limited for the Poplar Row Social Housing Development, along with all the other members of the design and construction teams for both projects. Congratulations to all of the nominees in each category, and J V Tierney & Co. are looking forward to the Gala night.
