JOHN PAUL PARTNERS WITH TU DUBLIN
John Paul Construction has announced a strategic partnership with Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), which began in 2019 to develop Design + Construct, a centre for collaborative, multidisciplinary education that will drive performance in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector.
The company has donated €150,000 in support of the University’s inaugural Capital Campaign Transforming Tomorrow, a €30 million fundraising initiative. Design + Construct will leverage TU Dublin’s expertise to address the key challenges of 21st-century construction, including building performance, energy-efficient design and the digitisation of the construction process.
The announcement follows a range of John Paul Construction initiatives to encourage future talent, including a Graduate Development Programme to help new recruits build the right blend of personal, professional and technical skills required to reach their full potential. The company also recently became the first building contractor to be awarded the Retain, Invest, Sustain, Engage (RISE) Corporate Support Scheme badge by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and holds the Engineers Ireland CPD Accredited Employer standard.
