RMJM Designing Engineering School in Galway
Leading British architectural practice RMJM is designing the National University of Ireland (NUI), Galway’s new Â¤60 million (Â£40.2 million) engineering school. The development, submitted for planning permission in June, will start on site in February 2008. The Governing Authority of NUI Galway authorised the visionary capital development programme at the campus in May 2006, of which the Engineering Building is the University’s largest capital project to date. The 14,200m2 new Engineering Building has been conceived as a pavilion in a park, referencing the University’s original 1845 quadrangle building. The zinc clad building in this new parkland will form the gateway to the emerging northern campus.
