DIT Grangegorman Campus
Fast track fit-out underway as countdown continues
With just 9 weeks to go to opening day, the power is turned on in the Cluster Buildings and the full fit-out has commenced. The photograph above shows the Library Information Desk that has been moved from Mountjoy Square being fixed in its new location in Rathdown House. The kitchen equipment and foodhall counters have been installed in the Courtyard/Café area on the ground floor. The floors have been sanded and, where applicable, new carpets are being laid. Outside, the paving is advancing at a very impressive pace. Everywhere you go, there is activity as the countdown to September 1 continues.
10 weeks to opening
It looks more like a quarry than a new University level campus, but we are still on target for opening to the first 1,000 students in 10 weeks time. The current excavation is a complex arrangement required to relocate one soil type in advance of creating the playing fields.
Greenway Hub Contract Signed
BAM Building Ltd. has been selected as the successful tenderer for the Greenway Hub building, the first new Dublin Institute of Technology building to be constructed on the Grangegorman Campus. The Greenway Hub will be home to the Environmental Health Sciences Institute and DIT Hothouse. BAM is due to move on site in the coming weeks and it is envisaged that this contract will take approximately 18 months to complete.
We are moving
