Building Contractor Announced for Academic Hub and Library on Grangegorman Campus

8 Feb, 2022

TU Dublin is delighted to announce the appointment of OHL-Townlink Joint Venture Ltd as the building contractor for the Academic Hub and Library on our Grangegorman Campus.

Designed by award-winning architects O'Donnell+Toumey, the Academic Hub will be visually unique, incorporating the existing North House building, which dates from 1854, into a new, modern structure that will wrap around the historical site – complimenting and enhancing it.

The current interim library at Park House (which houses the Arts & Humanities and Sciences collections for students and staff Grangeorman) will move along with the library at Aungier Street to the Academic Hub building when it is completed. Other services that will be based in the Academic Hub and Library are the Academic Writing Centre, Careers Development Centre, Disability Support Centre, Civic Engagement, People Development and the Maths Learning Centre. This will represent 12,500m2 of library and Academic Support space across five floors and the opportunity for community engagement in the heart of the Grangegorman Campus.
