This project involves the construction of a new city mortuary and offices for the State Pathologist forming a Medico-Legal Centre. Working in association with McCullough Mulvin Architects (Dublin), the new facility will provide state of the art facilities for the investigation and analysis of suspicious deaths. The accommodation includes two post mortem suites, viewing areas, laboratories and staff offices.

The building is located on the site of an historic demesne, in close proximity to a National Monument, The Casino Marino.
The building features a roach bed portland stone cladding in response to its relationship with the listed building and a contemplative garden is created for visitors and staff.
