The satellite centres will be located in Tallaght in Dublin 24 and Blanchardstown in Dublin 15 and are set to complete in 2017, subject to planning approval.
Turner & Townsend is already acting as cost manager on other major health projects in Ireland, including the radiation oncology centres in Cork University Hospital and University Hospital Galway, and the National Rehabilitation Hospital in County Dublin.
