National University of Ireland, Maynooth - Bioscience & Engineering Building

It provides the college with three floors of laboratories, classrooms and study rooms for undergraduate and post graduate science research.

This new biosciences and electronic engineering building was completed in 2004. It provides the college with three floors of laboratories, classrooms and study rooms for undergraduate and post graduate science research. The project included the installation of fume hoods, containment laboratories, growth rooms and specialist animal breeding rooms along with specialist lab furniture and fittings. The structure comprises on an in situ concrete and blockwork frame with precast floor slabs. The top floors were constructed using structural steel to minimise loading weights on the floors below. Internal finishes were painted fairfaced block walls with vinyl flooring, which allowed some services to be surface mounted. The laboratories were highly serviced and coordination of services was critical to the success of this project.
