This project at Dublin City University required the construction of a new 3-storey science research building with enclosed plant at roof level, totalling 3000m2 in floor area.
Key features and benefits:
- The facility is comprised of science laboratories, workshops, offices, seminar rooms, meeting and circulation areas and also an underground link to the existing NICB building and ancillary areas.
- Externally, we provided hard and soft landscaping and a permanent car park for 104 spaces including disabled spaces with accesses, all situated to the east of the existing Health Sciences Building on the Collins Avenue extension frontage.
- This research facility primarily addresses the need for additional customised space as well as integrating key existing and new facilities on campus. It provides a significant infrastructural enhancement to the Faculties of Science & Health and Engineering & Computing, and facilitates new developments in emerging areas at the interface of the science and engineering disciplines.
- As this contract took place on an existing, ‘live’ educational facility, it demanded meticulous planning and management.
