About the Project

This project involves an extension to the Intensive Critical Care Unit (ICCU) at Tallaght University Hospital (TUH). The ICCU was operating at 112% occupancy of its critical care capacity.

After years of dedication to the delivery of the development, the hospital-led project finally received the funding go-ahead from the HSE. The funding has more than doubled the capacity of the current ICCU, increasing the hospital’s nine-bed critical care unit to a 21-bed facility. In recent years, the hospital has been forced to supplement its nine ICCU beds by using other units as ICCU overflow areas, which has been less than an ideal arrangement for patients and staff alike. Now with the ICCU extension successfully open the Post Anaesthesia Care Unit is no longer being used as an ICU overflow area – resulting in major surgeries no longer having to be rescheduled. There is no doubt the creation of 12 more beds at this ICCU will save lives.

IN2 ensured the most effective and sustainable designs and strategies services and design were executed for this much-needed extension. IN2 overcame many challenges to ensure the successful delivery of our services, such as Covid-19 and working to cater to a live hospital environment. IN2 are proud to have been involved in such an essential project and to offer the skills and experience we have already gained in the Healthcare sector.


IN2 undertook complete M&E design as well as designing the Environmental strategy for the 12 new state of the art HTM complaint isolation rooms


IN2 designed the environmental strategy with Sustainability and carbon reduction in front of mind


The extension to the ICCU was successfully opened by Minster of Health Stephen Donnelly TD. The design of this facility will enable the Hospital to transform the delivery and standard of care for the most vulnerable patients but also create an exceptional environment for the dedicated hard-working staff within the ICCU.
