Minister Bruton attends DIT Grangegorman topping off ceremony for new research and innovation building
Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, recently visited DIT Grangegorman to see the new research and innovation building currently being constructed by BAM.
Following a tour of the building, the Minister laid the ceremonial final brick to signify completion of the structure. Fit-out of the interior will now take place and the building will open in January 2016.
The new building will provide a range of research laboratories and facilities for the Environmental Sustainability and Health Institute (ESHI) in areas that include Social and Educational Research; Health Informatics; Bioengineering; Molecular and Cell Biology; Analytical Chemistry; Food Safety/Quality; Energy Lab; and Vision Sciences.
The DIT Hothouse incubator and knowledge transfer activity will also be located in the building, with a mix of own-door rentable units of varying sizes for High Potential Start-ups (HPSU), hot desk zones, training and meeting rooms. The building was designed by RKD Architects.
