Martin Ryan Institute

Galway, Ireland
Medical Institute
1,620 m2

We were commissioned by the National University of Ireland, Galway to undertake the Civil and Structural engineering consultant design of an extension to the Martin Ryan Institute. It is located on a high profile site adjacent to the existing Martin Ryan Institute building, which is near to both the University campus entrance and a protected canal. Numerous design options were explored by our team to accommodate the budgetary restrictions, and also, to incorporate several brief requirements into the final design namely: The inclusion of an 80-student undergraduate teaching laboratory, a 165-seated tiered lecture theatre, research laboratories with associated write-up/study areas, and a large 50-seated meeting room. The final design solution implemented was a 1,620 sq.m structure consisting of a long-span steel frame and composite steel beams with metal decking incorporated into the services zone.
