The applications for the extensions were made to Dublin City Council recently.
The first application is for the development of a new ground-floor single-storey extension to the audiology department, within an adjacent hospital internal courtyard, to contain an audiology clinic and control room.
The development can be accessed off St Anthony’s Place and is located within the curtilage of the existing children’s hospital.
Associated works consist of partial demolition of an existing hospital wall and external works, to provide a new accessible entrance to the department off St Anthony’s Place.
The other development, which also can be accessed off St Anthony’s Place, consists of a new single-storey extension to St Gabriel’s Department, over the existing ground-floor outpatients department, to contain a classroom.
Meanwhile, the Children’s Hospital Group recently invited expressions of interest from experienced artists to enter into a phase of research and development between August and October 2017, leading to proposals for a range of ambitious artworks that will be integrated into the new children’s hospital public realm spaces and its paediatric outpatient and urgent care centres.
This research and development phase will be a stand-alone contract and the realisation of resulting proposals will be contracted separately. Expressions of interest were due for a closing date of 19 July.
