The Phoenix Care Centre is the first new building to be constructed as part of the redevelopment of the old St Brendan's Hospital site in Grangegorman. The new building has a total floor area of 7,600m² comprising new residential accommodation for patients with 54 bedrooms and ensuites, recreational rooms, clinical rooms, administration areas, seclusion rooms and therapy gardens. The building is spread over three floors which are constructed around two Internal Courtyards.
This uniquely designed mental health facility provides a safe, secure and therapeutic environment for patients to receive the care they require in a modern environment. The process of planning and design of this project had to take into account the full scope of anti ligature equipment provided for in relevant legislation and best practice.
Sisk played an integral part in this process by presenting samples to the design team and the client at an early stage. This ensured that the tight construction programme was achieved.
