Permission for the demolition of an existing single storey outbuilding (boiler house) and the removal of an existing surface level ancillary car park and associated vehicular access together with site clearance (including tree removal) and ground works to facilitate the redevelopment of the site.

The proposed redevelopment of the site comprises the provision of a new 3-storey Education and Research Centre building to accommodate faculty offices, administration, auditorium and classrooms and entrance lobby and café, together with showers, changing and toilet facilities all at ground floor level. A small mezzanine level sits above the entrance lobby to provide further ancillary breakout space. At first floor level the building is arranged to provide office and administration space and meeting rooms along with tutorial rooms and recreational facilities including a fitness suite and breakout space. An external roof terrace is provided on the western side of the building at first floor level above the entrance level/café. The proposed second floor comprises medical diagnostics labs with ancillary lab spaces and ancillary offices, meeting room and staff facilities. The proposed building provides a total of 4,103 sq.m. of Gross Floor Area (GFA), excluding the external roof terrace and replacement boiler house.

New vehicular access with associated access and egress control barriers is proposed in a revised position to the north of the proposed building and south of the existing HSE Academic Building to serve the proposed ancillary surface level car park that will provide a service bay. 34 no. car parking spaces and a bicycle storeroom to provide 36 no. bicycle storage spaces. An additional 36 no. bicycle storage spaces (18 no. Sheffield type stands) are provided.

Other works include the provision of a single storey, detached boiler house (15 sq.m), taxi drop-off and outdoor refuse storage enclosures/service yard together with associated flood mitigation works associated with Abbotstowm Stream. The flood mitigation works include the replacement of an existing downstream culvert (comprising a 1050 mm diameter concrete pipe) with a new 2.7 m x 1.5 m box culvert, approximately 55 m in length together with the installation of debris/security screen to headwall and provision of a low-level wall (approximately 300 mm in height) extending from the HSE Academic Building to the north of the development site extending southwards to the southern end of the ESB Substation immediately to the south of the development site.

Proposed site works include the temporary closure of a section (approximately 55m in length) of the existing access road to St. Francis Hospice and the provision of a re-aligned temporary vehicular access road and footpath with associated traffic light system to facilitate temporary road access/arrangement for the duration of the construction stage of the replacement culvert. Other site works include site clearance and groundworks, landscaping works and provision of external lighting and associated infrastructure provision to serve the car park (including underground surface water storage attenuation tank).

Two (2 no.) wall-mounted, back-lit signs are proposed at a second-floor level to the southern and western elevations of the building, respectively. The signs comprise standard RCSI coloured logo and lettering that measures approximately 1.75 m in width and 2.49 m in height (the logo measures approximately 1.7 m in height on top of RCSI lettering that measures approximately 0.61m in height).
