National Children Detention Facility (NCDF), Co. Dublin

This project was carried out in collaboration with the Office of Public Works for the Department of Children & Youth Affairs. The design is for a facility to provide secure and suitable accommodation for children on the site of an existing detention centre. It includes residential , educational & recreational facilities along with ancillary administration, visiting and medical facilities. The project involves complex project management issues of site development, phasing, health & safety, coordination with occupied zones of the campus and programming. Careful design solutions were developed that recognised the security requirements, the safety of residents, visitors and staff, all to be accommodated within a secure site while maintaining existing live facilities on the campus. Due to the sensitive nature of this project, images are withheld.
