Hospital and healthcare facilities must also be responsive to Planning requirements. Take ‘RenNAASance’ for example – a day Hospitals and Diagnostic Treatment centre with emphasis on planned diagnostic and intervention surgical procedures, specialist medical consultation and ancillary medical and administration support services. HRA PLANNING were retained to provide the planning application and design team strategy that required demonstration of compliance with the ‘masterplanned’ and phased expansion of Naas Co. Kildare. Successful negiotation with the planning authority on phasing, design, and integration with the masterplan eliminated project planning delays and resulted in the a speedy grant of planning permission.
This understanding of healthcare requirements has been successfully applied in other projects for primary and secondary medical facilities in other urban areas.
