No date finalised yet for Hawkins House staff move

By Mindo - 10th Jan 2018

The relocation is due to take place sometime over the next three months (January-March), according to the timeline outlined by the Office of Public Works (OPW) late last year.

A Department spokesperson said the timeline for the relocation to its new offices on Baggot Street is contingent on a number of factors.

“A specific date for the commencement of the relocation of the Department from Hawkins House has not been settled,” the Department spokesperson told the <strong><em>Medical Independent</em></strong> (<strong><em>MI</em></strong>).

“It is dependent on the completion of the ongoing redevelopment and fit-out of the building that is under the auspices of the Office of Public Works. 

“It will also take account of the relocation of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs and parts of the Departments of Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform to the same building.”

However, the spokesperson did say that staff were being kept informed on the move.

“Preparations for the relocation are ongoing and the move of the various divisions of the Department will be scheduled, taking primary account of minimising disruption to business continuity. Staff are briefed on an ongoing basis in relation to progress.”

Staff in Hawkins House have previously voiced some disfavour over the move, particularly in regards to the planned open-plan style and smaller requested floor space of the allocated offices.
