RMJM's University of Ireland building opens doors

  • Comment

[First look + plans] RMJM’s £40 million engineering building for the National University of Ireland in Galway (NUIG) has been officially opened

Designed by RMJM’s Scottish Studio in partnership with the Irish-based Taylor Architects, the four-storey, 14,250 m² facility is the largest of its kind in Ireland and won approval in 2009.

According to the practice the ‘services are exposed with pipes and ducting labelled in corridors’ with rooms acting as a ‘gross anatomy lesson for engineering students’.

Director Conor Pittman of RMJM’s Scottish Studio (now the Paul Stallan Studio) said: ‘The design of the new NUI Galway Engineering campus is extremely unique as elements of the building have been left exposed to educate students. It is a world class facility which will enhance the university’s already fantastic reputation in engineering education.’
