The new Trinity Business School building will support activities of the TCD School of Business and Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The building is over 11,300m2 with six storeys above ground and two below. It will house a 600-seat auditorium, teaching space and offices and will include restaurant spaces for 200 people. Key features of this innovative and learning centred building are a public space where students can meet and exchange ideas, ‘smart’ classrooms with the latest digital technology, as well as a rooftop conference room and access to a generous green roof space.
The new School stands right at the heart of the campus facing towards College Park and includes the protected period buildings from 183 to 188 Pearse Street. Supporting the value ‘to put in more than we take out’ the new building is designed to a near zero energy standard. It will have a green wall and roof garden, solar panels and natural ventilation.
