Section II: Object
AHLC: Reserved Specialists
The initial phase of the TU Dublin Academic Hub and Library Complex is planned as a cluster of buildings and courtyards, both existing and new around the historic North House protected structure. The library and student support complex will sit at the heart of the new Grangegorman campus, addressing a large plaza and commanding views over the city.
The overall Phase 1 development is approximately 12 580 m2 in area. The development consists of 9 505 m2 of new build construction with the balance comprising the retained elements of the North House East and North House West protected structures (Planning Ref GSDZ2346/19).
The scope of works will include the demolition of existing redundant structures including the stand alone North House Annexe, changing rooms and extensions to the existing North House buildings.
The proposed works will encompass incorporating natural stone products to walls, window surround, feature bands and similar architectural detailing. Design and installation of complex secondary support mechanisms and solutions will be required as part of the scope of these specialist works.
Glazing and Curtain Walling
The proposed works will encompass glazing and curtain walling elements with extensive interface and coordination with stone cladding being undertaken by another reserved specialist. The scope of the glazing and curtain walling element also includes a feature glazed roof with complex self support structure. Design and installation of complex secondary support mechanisms and solutions will be required as part of the scope of the works.
The building's sustainability agenda is being driven by the Building Regulations/NZEB requirements. Emphasis will be given on energy efficiency in operation. The established principles across the campus including connections to the existing district heating system, natural ventilation, comfort cooling in selected areas, exposed thermal mass and controlled window openings will be used to control overheating in the warmer months.
The electrical systems within the building will include an MV/LV transformer, back-up generator, main and secondary comms rooms as well as various systems appropriate to the building's type, scale and intended use (accesscontrol. Security and CCTV systems, fire detection, public address, PA/VA).Emphasis will be given in reducing energy use by taking advantage of the natural daylighting in combination with responsive artificial lighting controls. The building will feature roof mounted PV panels.
Lift/transport services. The building will feature a combination of motor-room-less passenger lifts including evacuation lifts in certain locations.
