Works involve the construction of 6,200m2 of new space over 2 storeys, comprising lecture rooms catering for up to 200 students; Auditoria for lectures and appellate moots; Clinical Legal Education Centre; Seminar and tutorial rooms; student breakout spaces; Dedicated PhD student spaces; meeting rooms and communal spaces; Boardroom and offices with a ground floor café.
External works include construction of lake and cycle-ways. The initiative behind the UCD Sutherland School of Law is the development and the creation of new initiatives, to enrich the educational environment of its student body, to work in partnership with the practicing legal profession and to establish a major, well-regarded and authoritative presence in the international legal community.
Theo Cullinane, CEO BAM commented “BAM are very pleased to have the opportunity to build this exceptional building for UCD. It will also enhance our own third level portfolio of significant university buildings that we have constructed in recent years; alongside the Western Building, UCC and Engineering Building in NUI Galway.”
