Following on from our update in January, we are delighted to see that the pace of progress on this project has been unrelenting. The project has now been successfully tendered and Purcell Construction have been tasked to carry out the works.
This ambitious project, in conjunction with TU Dublin and the Grangegorman Development Agency, now embarks to restore the building and bring it into use once again. Once complete, the building will form an important part of the new University campus, offering a range of services for the staff and student body. There will be a large catering facility and coffee shop while the building will also provide Student Union areas and facilities along with a dance studio and some indoor sports areas. There will also be a number of rooms for the Conservatory of Music and Drama. It will be linked by way of a landscaped walkway to the East Quad.
The Project is expected to be finished in summer 2020 with the fully restored and operational Lower House opening alongside the Central and East Quads for the start of the Academic Year that September.
