NUI Galway seeking design team for law school relocation

  • Comment

National University of Ireland (NUI) Galway is on the lookout for an architect to overhaul its school of law

The winning team will create a new headquarters for the prestigious faculty inside the university’s historic Áras Cairnes building (pictured) which already houses the university’s business and economics school.

According to the contract notice: ‘This relocation provides a valuable opportunity to address the spatial challenges faced by the school for a number of years and to achieve a single location for members of the ‘core’ school of law.

‘The relocation will include enhancements to Áras Cairnes to optimise the use of this space providing greater visibility for the college of business, public policy and law and particular improvements to the main entrance of the building.’

Purchased by NUI Galway in 1991, the white stuccoed Classically-styled building was formerly owned by the Franciscan Order.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 14 September.
