Designed to replace an existing key facility on the University Hospital Waterford campus - the design of the new Waterford University Hospital Mortuary Building seeks to bridge a building-design of character, with the solemn, comforting, and respectful atmosphere suitable for the different functions, and associated ‘non-denominational’ end of life processes which it houses.

Requiring easy locatability by - and the appropriate environment for - the visiting public during sensitive times, the project consequently seeks a mindful architectural solution which meets the clinical, and ceremonial operations, which are uniquely required in parallel within a building of this type. These aims are required to be achieved in tandem with the creation of an elegant landmark structure, which will be highly visible from the adjacent Waterford City-Centre arterial roadway and a residential / retail district - as well as a designed to enable a construction-delivery which will be conscious of the new building's location within the ‘blue-light route’ of a live hospital campus.
