Galway Radiation Oncology Centre

BIM models were developed for this project with BIM software solutions used to analyse the structural and civil engineering models. The project involves the design of a 3 No. storey Radiation Oncology centre (8,058 sq m total gross floorspace) and enclosed single storey pedestrian link corridor on the site of the existing Psychiatric Unit on University Hospital Galway campus and incorporates 6No. linear accelerator (linac) bunkers. The works include the demolition of the existing Psychiatric Unit and link corridor to the Paediatric Unit (3,000 sq m) and the integration of the existing pedestrian link to the Paediatrics Unit and the main hospital building.

Tekla Structural Designer design and analysis software was used to analyse the RC cores, flat slab, column and edge beam superstructure and a 3D BIM model of the building was developed using Revit software. A separate Revit model of the the 6No. RC linac bunkers was created and linked into the main model to aid with file size.

To ensure consistency in the project information and utilise the software and BIM processes to their ability, T. J. O’Connor & Associates ensured that all drawing deliverables were extracted from the Revit model.

Windes MicroDrainage computer modelling software, based on the Wallingford Procedure, was used to analyse the foul and surface water outfall rates and aid in designing Sustainable Urban Drainage systems.

AutoCAD Civils 3D software used to create a model of the existing and proposed ground surface profiles and below ground water, foul and surface water services.

The BIM software was used to analyse and design the building and services to accommodate the future vertical expansion of 2No. additional stories.
