COADY Architects and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios are pleased to announce that planning permission was approved by An Bord Pleanála for a major new student accommodation development at Dublin City University’s Glasnevin Campus.

The proposed scheme, our largest student residential scheme to receive planning to date, will include 1,240 bed spaces and communal living facilities, arranged across seven blocks of accommodation, ranging from 4 to 10 storeys in height. A sequence of landscaped ‘garden rooms’ provide defined external recreation spaces for residents and allow public access through the site. Central to the success of the scheme has been the creation of high quality and sustainable facilities, which will create ownership, foster wellbeing and encourage active use. The scheme aims to meet stringent NZEB and EXEED standards in terms of energy efficiency.

The development forms part of the aspirations of Dublin City University in expanding and upgrading its campus at Glasnevin to meet the rapidly changing needs of its student population. Production of tender documentation is currently underway by the design team.

Mark McCann, Managing Director at COADY Architects said “At DCU, we are delighted to be working with FCBStudios, and with an ambitious client, in transforming their Glasnevin campus. The creation of a new student village will deliver commercially viable, high quality and environmentally sustainable facilities which will improve the current offer on campus, appealing to both local and wider international markets.”
