St. Otteran’s Enabling works

St. Otteran’s Enabling works


Mulcahy Construction was hired by the health board to carry out enabling works at St Otterans hospital Waterford. The work consisted of demolition of old boiler room building around a listed brick chimney and re-pointing of chimney and new cap and reinforced band.

The project consisted of conservation and restoration works to a 19th century, 28 metre high octagonal brick chimney structure and switch / generator building (which are protected structures) to the approval of the conservation officer. The electrical works required handling of high electrical content within a live hospital environment. These significant restoration works included the removal of existing roof structure; waterproofing and blocking up existing openings whilst maintaining appearance as requested by conservation architect.
