UCD Newstead Phases 1 & 2, Belfield, Co. Dublin

UCD acquired the former Phillips Electronics building on Clonskeagh Road adjacent to Belfield Campus.

Phase 1 

Condition assessment was carried out by Clifton Scannell Emerson Associates (CSEA) and Kavanagh Tuite Architects whereupon the building was deemed suitable for refurbishment and re-use as the new School of Civil Engineering.

An Enabling Works project was carried out by Walmac that included demolitions, diversion of existing pumped drainage to a gravity sewer, construction of new internal contained laboratory drainage and ground floor slabs.

Work commenced on Phase 1 reconstruction of Block B in June 2006 and was completed on programme by John Paul Construction for the start of the 2008 academic year. 

The completed section of the building consists of 6000m² of lecture, seminar, laboratory, studio and office space, and accommodates the Faculties of Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture. 

 Phase 2

The second phase of the contract was the enabling works to allow for the construction of a new gym for Leinster Rugby.  These works included new drainage, and sub-division of the building.  Clifton Scannell Emerson Associates acted as Civil and Structural Engineers on the project.
