Lecture Theatres and Administration Offices

These recent works undertaken at St. Patricks College Campus in Drumcondra included the refurbishment and fit out of the existing lecture facilities and administration offices. These works were undertaken in a live environment, with students and staff present, so caution had to be taken to provide minimum disruption to critical services.
This project involved the total renovation of  three 60 pupil lecture rooms, the redevelopment of two existing 150 pupil lecture theatres and the fit-out of the associated administration block.
Delap & Waller provided full mechanical and electrical design services for these works and integrated a range of sustainable design features including:

  • The use of PL Lighting and energy efficient lighting
  • A natural Ventilation Strategy
  • Minimised Solar Gains
  • A pre Cooling Strategy
  • Rainwater Harvesting

These works form part of a major campus upgrade project being undertaken by St. Patricks College, that will include the construction of a learning centre comprising a new library and teaching block with a 500 Pupil lecture theatre and two 250 pupil lecture theatres.
