NUI Galway Engineering Building

The New Engineering Building at NUI Galway integrates all engineering activities on campus into an exclusive, state of the art academic facility. The building not only provides a learning environment, but acts as a teaching and learning tool. It is a ‘living laboratory’ for engineering, where live data sets from numerous types of sensors are provided for use in illustrating structural engineering and building performance concepts in undergraduate teaching, and in the development of full-scale research in structural engineering and energy. Key members of the project team will present on the different aspects of the project, from design and construction, through to the design and implementation of the living laboratory learning environment. The building recently won the 2011 Irish Concrete Society Sustainability Award (here) and is featured in the current issue of The Structural Engineer (here).

The speakers are:

  • Eamonn Cannon, Chartered Engineer & retired lecturer NUI Galway
  • Dr Jamie Goggins, Chartered Engineer & Lecturer, NUI Galway
  • Eddie O’Brien, Project Manager, BAM Contractors
  • Fiona Purcell, Chartered Engineer, Arup Consulting Engineers

This event is jointly hosted by the Republic of Ireland Branch of the Institution of Structural Engineers, and the Structures and Construction Division of Engineers Ireland.
