RCSI’s state-of-the-art new academic and education building, located at 26 York Street, Dublin 2 will open in autumn 2017, in time for the new academic year.

Axiseng were the M&E Consulting Engineers on the project which was designed by the Dublin-based Henry J Lyons Architects.

The College has invested approximately €80 million in the development of this modern, practical and sophisticated facility. The 120,000 sqf development, spanning 10 floors, comprises a world-class surgical and clinical training suite containing a flexible wet lab, mock operating theatre, clinical training wards, standardised patients rooms and task training rooms.

It also includes a 540 seat auditorium, a library on three floors with 500 study spaces, a sports hall and fitness suite, and has been designed to be both energy efficient and environmentally responsible.
