Dungarvan PCC is located adjacent to Dungarvan Community Hospital on the grounds of Dungarvan Workhouse, a protected structure. The proposed development is planned as a compact donut plan building with an atrium space at the centre. The perimeter accommodation around the atrium is arranged on two or three floors and has windows overlooking both the outside and the inner space. Accommodation includes a Mental Health Day Unit, Nursing Clinical Areas, bookable Clinical rooms and GP accommodation, Dental, therapies, SaLT, Physiotherapy and shell space for GP expansion. The space at the centre of the building is covered with a translucent glazed roof to form a two storey high atrium. The proposed design seeks to work with the existing protected structures to create a civic space at its entrance.
