The Royal Hospital Kilmainham is an iconic landmark. Built in 1690, this building has looked after veterans from the Battle of the Boyne as well as serving as the Garda Headquarters for 20 years then becoming home to the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA).
Since converting to an art gallery, we have delivered several schemes within the Royal Hospital since 2001. These have included;
New lecture theatre
Our building services team was appointed to fit out the new theatre which included air conditioning, lighting and bespoke AV and fire systems.
Hydraulic lift replacement
Three passenger lifts were upgraded to evacuation lifts. This included modifications to the lift car, the associated mains and generator power supplies. A disabled refuge call system was also installed in each lift car and in each lobby.
Fire, security and gallery lighting upgrades
These works included the full upgrade of fire, emergency lighting, security and gallery lighting throughout the museum. The project included a new security room with central control console. The gallery lighting design comprised continuous LED modules on top of the lighting system to uplight the ceiling which provided a basic level of indirect lighting to the exhibit space. CCTV cameras were mounted on opposing corners of the lighting system.
New Arts Lift
the works included the installation of a new 3000kg goods/passenger lift used to transport large pieces of Artworks to the upper levels of the gallery.
mechanical and electrical works associated with the refurbishment of the second floor of the North West Corner, ladies’ toilets and shower on the Second Floor South Wing and other minor upgrades throughout the building.
Deputy Masters Residence
These works included the full upgrade of the Gallery Lighting Scheme.
North Range M&E Upgrade
The North Range comprises five levels; basement to attic. The basement contains a café and kitchen and is connected via tunnel to the large Plant Room and Energy Centre. The ground, first floor and second floor comprise the Great Hall and the Chapel, both being triple height spaces. These works included the full upgrade of fire, lighting, emergency lighting, security, heating and ventilation throughout the area.
