Walls Construction Limited is pleased to announce that we will support Design + Construct, Ireland’s first Centre of Excellence for Architecture, Construction and Engineering (AEC) education and research from Technological University Dublin.

Building on over a century of delivering education for the AEC sector, Design + Construct will leverage TU Dublin’s expertise to address the key challenges of 21st-century construction. Upon completion, the centre will be located at TU Dublin in Broombridge, Cabra, representing a €30 million project.

Commenting on the announcement, Adrian Corcoran, Chief Operating Officer of Walls Construction, said: “We are delighted to support Design + Construct, TU Dublin’s Centre of Excellence for AEC education and research, in their superb new location in Broombridge. This is a deliberate strategic decision for Walls as our organisation, and the Irish construction industry will benefit enormously from a collaborative-based research, training and education facility that produces uniquely qualified students exposed to multidisciplinary learning and understanding prior to embarking on their careers. We look forward to assisting TU Dublin on its exciting mission to establish Design + Construct as an expertise centre providing students with practical, industry-related skills that will prepare them for successful careers in construction.”
