Completion of Nazareth House Phase 1

The first phase of works at Nazareth House nursing home at Mallow has been completed for the Sisters of Nazareth.


This initial phase comprised the construction of a new two and three storey 120-bedroom household, ancillary accommodation and external plant areas, with the new block arranged around adjoining landscaped courtyards. In its prior state the site was marked by steep slopes falling from south to north. This challenging topography has been addressed with extensive earthworks to resolve changing levels.

The works included the partial strip-out and refurbishment of Newberry House to provide accommodation for the Sisters and the partial refurbishment of the lower ground floor of Nazareth House to provide a staff canteen and changing facilities, all located within the curtilage of a Protected Structure.

This first phase of development required the demolition of several existing structures on the site:

  • The community hall, a mid-to-late 20th century building which adjoined the east elevation of Nazareth House.
  •  single storey extension to the west end of Newberry House, again dating from the mid-to-late 20th century.
  • A single storey outbuilding and corridor connecting to the rear (south) of Newberry House.

Selective demolition of existing internal partitions within Nazareth House and Newberry House has facilitated new internal arrangements. While some such partitions were original to the buildings, many were introduced under subsequent interventions. The link building which connects Newberry House with Nazareth House has been retained, and other retained structures include the Laundry Building and the Mortuary Chapel.

Works commenced in December 2016, with Reddy A+U acting as Lead Consultant. Project team members included Tom McNamara & Partners (Quantity Surveyor), Punch Consulting Engineers (Civils and Structures), Varming Consulting Engineers (Building Services), Daire Byrne & Associates (Fire and DAC) and CField Construction (Main Contractor).
