One of the country’s biggest universities is planning to extend its technology facilities, adding around 30,000 square metres of teaching and research buildings.

Trinity College Dublin has published a tender document seeking construction consultants to manage and design the proposed development.

Its current Technology and Enterprise Campus, which is mainly used as an incubator for companies spun out of university research, is located off-site on Dublin’s Pearse Street. It is not yet clear where the new buildings will be based. Besides, funding is not believed to be in place:

“The requirements for the research and teaching demand of these groups is currently being assessed, but may be in the region of 30,000 square metres of teaching, research, new or refurbished buildings in one or more locations, with units from on and off the main city centre campus coming together or moving in their entirety”, a tender document said, who also added :

“In the coming months, the college intends to continue the briefing process with members of the research community and conclude analyses of teaching and other space with expert consultants. The buildings required may be released in a number of lots, with initial buildings of relatively small scale.”

With major employers increasingly complaining of skills shortages, educators around the world are ploughing resources into new teaching and research facilities.
