GEM Construction in a Joint Venture with Elliott Construction called GEM Elliott Construction commenced work on the construction of a new 75 Bed Ward Block as an extension on to the existing live acute University Hospital Galway.

All works that interfaced with the hospital were carried out under method statement and work permits. There were over 200 method statements issued on this project. We used an LOD 350 BIM model to coordinate the services even though it was not a contractual requirement.

All M&E systems were agreed via technical submittal process. Workshops were held on all critical systems with the hospital maintenance and end user staff.

Technical submitted on all packages on the project in order to ensure compliance with the works requirements.

A sample/mock-up room was constructed at the start of the project in order to agree details, which was one of the key reason we achieved a very high quality finish on the project.
