When finished, the East Quad buildings will accommodate staff and students of the College of Arts and Tourism, including its programmes relating to the creative and cultural industries, and will include a 400 seat music performance hall, music, dance & drama performance & practice spaces and creative arts & media studios. The gross internal floor area for the East Quad will be approx. 16,000 m².

Sisk FCC is a joint venture setup between John Sisk & Son and Spanish construction company, FCC Construction. The project consists of the two buildings and represents the largest PPP (Public Private Partnership) project in the education sector. Sisk FCC are pleased to say the project is progressing on time and on budget. We are also pleased to be working in collaboration on this project with our key stakeholders the Grangegorman Development Agency, Macquarie Capital and the NDFA to deliver this exciting educational infrastructure.
