Dublin Port Centre was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Mícheál Mac Donncha, on Friday, October 13th 2017.

Chief Executive of Dublin Port Company, Eamonn O’Reilly, described it as the beginning of a 'new chapter of port-city integration', one which will benefit city dwellers and visitors alike.

Combining an eclectic but complementary mix of industrial heritage, architecture, engineering, landscape and art, the Centre stands as a testament to vision, design skill and construction tenacity.  

Its magical elements include:

  • 35m high restored 1960s docklands crane, resplendent in Dublin blue
  • 4m diameter polished stainless steel sphere
  • 8 stately weathering steel turnstiles
  • landscaped “maritime” garden with seats for reflection and relaxation.

Roughan & O'Donovan, who provided civil and structural engineering and PSDP services for the project, will now turn its focus to supporting Dublin Port's plans for a new €50m redevelopment of its road network.  The scheme aims to ensure that Dublin Port's road network has the capacity to handle the doubling of port volumes projected by 2040.  As lead designers, Roughan & O'Donovan will oversee the development of:

  • c.1.5km of new road construction
  • junction improvements
  • landmark feature bridge
  • extensive gantry deployment
  • 4km walkway/cycleway
