See the below video for the latest drone footage of the Quads. Both the Central and Qast Quads are looking very impressive and progress is continuing at a fast pace.
East Quad Topping Out
To mark the completion of the frame of the East Quad, a Topping Out ceremony was held on Wednesday 3rd April 2019.
When complete the East Quad buildings will accommodate staff and students of the College of Arts and Tourism, including its programmes relating to the creative and cultural industries, and will include a 400 seat music performance hall, music, dance & drama performance & practice spaces and creative arts & media studios. The gross internal floor area for the East Quad will be approx. 16,000 m².
The images below show the progress from inside the building.
Central Quad Progress Continuing
Central Quad is really taking shape this week with the facade on the south side nearly complete. What, up to now, has seemed like a building site is now beginning to look like a proper building.
Facade work begins on Central Quad and Performance Hall takes shape in East Quad
Real signs of progress this week on both Quads. Construction of the southern blocks of the Central Quad is now complete and, in the above picture, you can see that the PPPco have begun to fill in the façade.
Meanwhile, over in East Quad, most of the steel for the Performance Hall is now up.
Finally, below is the latest drone footage we have received, showing the progress on both Quads. In particular, at 0.38 seconds, you have a good view of the concrete being poured on the upper level of the Central Quad.

Darkness Into Light
Until now, TUDublin did not have the facilities to run such an event. However, the collaborative efforts of Pieta House, TUDublin Mental Health Society, Event Society, Societies Office and
TUDubin Estates have made the walk a reality.
The walk aims to raise awareness of Suicide & Self Harm, which is exactly what the charity Pieta House works to address in its day-to-day operations. The event is one of the 100s taking place across the country, and we're delighted to be able to hold a walk for students, staff and the local Grangegorman community.
