The Department of Education has ordered an examination of 42 schools built by Tyrone-based Western Building Systems in the past ten years after “significant structural issues” were recently identified at a north Dublin school.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said that hospital units built by Tyrone-based construction company Western Building Systems (WBS) are being examined to make sure that they are structurally sound.
He said that initial indications from Beaumont Hospital and some of the health buildings is that the units are not affected by structural problems which were discovered in school buildings built by WBS.
The HSE has said it is working to establish a list of any health facilities it may have engaged WBS to construct.
The company website lists a number of facilities at Beaumont, St Finbarr’s in Cork, Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda and Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin.
