The landscaping works include the provision of a kitchen garden, orchard and wildflower meadow with beehives; 28 covered cycle-parking spaces.

“This new capital investment in teaching, learning and research facilities in TU Dublin, Tallaght further supports our commitment to the South Dublin region where members of local organisations and students will collaborate in modern facilities, which will promote research and student learning, while also directly addressing the needs of industry and organisations in the region” said a TU Dublin spokesperson.

TU Dublin also have a second project planned for Tallaght – a Sports Science, Health and Recreation building, including outdoor sporting facilities which was reported in The Echo earlier in the year.

This building will provide students and staff access to new state-of-the-art facilities that will enhance the learning environment and career opportunities for its students.

The new buildings will include teaching and learning spaces, studios, lecture theatres, research facilities, design studios and a training restaurant.
