British engineering in Gilberts helps deliver European healthcare first

  • 2 Sep 2019

The most advanced clinical healthcare simulation centre in Europe is assured of a healthy environment for its occupants, thanks to Gilberts Blackpool.

This is despite planning constraints and almost half of the building being below ground.

The award-winning Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) has opened a new centre at 26 York St, in the heart of Dublin’s St Stephens Green area, all of which is ventilated by grilles and diffusers from UK-based Gilberts.

In total, some 500 of Gilberts’ ventilators have been installed, via Keane Environmental, throughout the 10,000 square metre building. 

Gilberts’ GSL slot, GSF perforated plate swirl, MBD multi linear blade, GZL zip and DGA four-way diffusers plus LGN slimline linear bar grilles have been utilised to air the space.

They have been incorporated into the multiple learning, study and recreational environments throughout the ten floors, including the 1200 square metre National Surgical & Clinical Skills Centre – the first of its kind outside of the United States. 

Ryan Caldwell, of Keane Environmental, commented: “The site is compact, and in the heart of Dublin’s historic centre, which posed build height restrictions. Thus four floors are below ground level.

“We also had to balance the architectural aesthetics, and appropriate air changes across a range of internal environments, which had varying degrees of requirements in terms of air quality.

“By using Gilberts grilles we were able to provide all the technical expertise, product quality and diversity to meet all of the project complexities.”
