Summary

Roughan & O’Donovan provided full civil and structural engineering services for this 297-bed student housing complex at Maynooth University.

Solution

The development consists of 3 individual courtyard blocks, 3 to 9 stories in height, with a total gross floor area of c. 9,300m2.

It includes a variety of apartment types, seminar rooms, retail and student social spaces cleverly integrated with existing campus facilities.

The units were handed over on a phased basis to allow students to gradually move in before the project was fully completed.

Challenge

All the works were carried out on a confined site, on a live university campus, close to other student residences and mature residential dwellings.

Services provided:

  • Structural engineering design
  • Civil engineering design
  • Planning reports
