Last week marked the first major milestone for Duggan Brothers; the Department of Housing; and the Dublin Simon Community on the new 100-Bed Medical Centre for the Dublin Simon Community. The formal contract signing took place on Tuesday 27th of July for the greatly anticipated €30M Medical Centre, which will provide fantastic support for Dublin’s homeless population. Minister for Housing, Darragh O’Brien was in attendance on the day to show his support for the new facility.
We are delighted to have been appointed Main Contractor for the construction of this much needed facility and look forward delivering a facility that will meet the needs of the homeless population.
Construction works on the new 100-bed facility are due to commence on Monday 9th August, with works expected to take 28 months to complete. The new facility will be located at Usher’s Island and will be partially funded by the Department of Housing and will be operated by the Dublin Simon Community.
When completed the facility with deliver residential medical, treatment and recovery services to meet the complex healthcare needs of people experiencing homelessness in Dublin, including detox, rehabilitation, semi-acute medical procedures and blood borne virus stabilisation. In recent months these services have been moved temporarily to other locations in the city in order to decant the site for the construction phase.
