The UCD Moore Centre for Business, the new wing of the UCD Lochlann Quinn School at the UCD Belfield campus, has reached project completion with the official opening due to take place on September 2nd. The new extension is linked to the adjoining Lochlann Quinn building at all levels with the new building constructed as an extension.
The newly completed building is a key element of the UCD college of business’ €65M strategic plan to be among the worlds top 50 business schools by 2020. The new building on the UCD Belfield campus comprises a 3 storey extension to the existing school of business. The extension incorporates an additional lecture theatre with learning areas, collaboration work spaces, classrooms, meeting rooms, studios, booths and an extension to the café lounge and all ancillary areas.
Features of the building include extensive co-working zones, an entrepreneurship and innovation hub, media suite, skills quarter support area, and transformative learning experiences to integrate data analysis with real world problem solving.
The works also included soft and hard landscaping, site services and the provision of 70 bicycle parking spaces adjacent to the existing building. The total gross floor area of development is c.2,996 m2 (with an additional c.103 m2 of enclosed roof plant).
Eddie Cleary, Contracts Director, Duggan Brothers said: “The build presented many challenges during the construction phase, which our project team overcame in order to provide our client, its faculty members & students with a world class centre for excellence. We wish UCD, its faculty members and students many successful years within the Moore Centre for Business”.
