DHD Construction Limited operates successfully in the Healthcare sector and indeed it is a primary target of the company. DHD have negotiated with one principal Client in the development of a share of its future nursing homes due to the successful completion of previous projects. DHD operates both in the private and public healthcare marketplace.

DHD has in its portfolio a new 103 bed nursing home centre in Northwood, Santry, North Dublin. The value of this design & build contract which included a full fit-out was approximately €9,000,000.00. This project was finished on programme and within budget. We negotiated this project due to our commitment to the Client/ Contractor relationship and indeed the provision of a prompt value for money solution to their requirements.

The standard of internal and external finish was provided to the highest specification with future maintenance kept in mind.

DHD has successfully handed over 2 Primary Care Centres constructed for the HSE to date. These Centres were constructed complete with the highest requirements of finish and mechanical and electrical systems to ensure that they operate successfully and provide a suitable environment for staff and facility users alike.


DHD have developed an in-depth understanding of the HSE’s requirements through the design development and construction of these facilities. These Centres, one in Summerhill Co. Meath and the other in Ashbourne Co. Meath are equipped to the highest standard with Building Management Systems ensuring ultimate control of the internal environment on a micro or macro basis.  


The development at Ashbourne involved structural remodelling of the building which was originally constructed for an alternative use. This remodelling included the adjustment in of one lift shaft from personnel to stretcher use. This project was constructed entirely on levels above ground and all materials and plant were successfully incorporated with the resultant extremely restricted site access.

Full doctor’s private practices were also constructed at both Centres and indeed the Summerhill development also boasts the national headquarters of the Third Age Foundation.

The Staff of DHD Construction Limited has also gained valuable experience in previous employments and the organization, from director level through senior management, and the on the site teams have experience in the successful completion of relevant healthcare projects including the following:

  • 139 Bed Nursing Home, Citywest, Co. Dublin
  • 84 Bed Nursing Home, Straffan, Co. Kildare
  • 92 Bed Nursing Home Santry, Dublin 9.

All Clients, Architects and Consultants are regarded as team members by DHD and indeed our approach is reflected in Client attestations.
