Cork University Maternity Hospital, Cork

Reddy A+U developed the new maternity hospital for Cork University which comprises of 5 patient wards with 144 in-patient bed spaces. The scheme provides a new public face for the hospital and the dynamic shape of the building provides for exceptional qualitative space internally for the wards, research facilities and staff alike.

The full project includes for a huge range of facilities to support the in-patient bed spaces including the specialist 12 station birthing suite, 3 operating theatres, a 50 cot neo-natal unit, a day services department, a consultants’ and administrative suite and an education and research centre.

The innovative form of the building facilitated linkage back to existing buildings at one vertex of the curved triangular plan while maintaining views out from adjacent existing wards.

Construction involved integrating a large complex building on a live hospital campus with connections to live buildings at a number of levels. The practice was also commissioned by the HSE and UCC to design the ANU Research Centre, on the top level of the hospital. The project involved extensive laboratory fit-outs with annexed office and teaching spaces.
