The National Development Finance Agency is pleased to announce that the Eriugena consortium has been notified of the decision to grant planning consent by Dublin City Council for each of the East and Central Quads in the strategic DIT Grangegorman Campus PPP. These decisions were made under the Strategic Development Zoning regime that is in place across the campus.
The Eriugena consortium, which is made up of Macquarie Capital Group, John Sisk & Sons and FCC Construction (Ireland) and Sodexo Ireland, was appointed as Preferred Tenderer on the project in March 2015. The project will involve the Design, Build, Finance and Maintenance for 25 years of circa 50,000sq m of state of the art academic accommodation for Dublin Institute of Technology on a new campus located just 1km from the centre of Dublin city.
The overall development of the site will ultimately involve the relocation of some 20,000 Dublin Institute of Technology staff and students from 39 different locations across Dublin city to a single unified campus. Some 10,000 students are set to benefit from the completion of the PPP Project.
The DIT Grangegorman Campus PPP project forms part of the Irish Government’s €2.25 billion Infrastructure Stimulus Programme announced in 2012 and represents the largest project to be delivered by the NDFA under its €650 million programme.
In conjunction with Enterprise Ireland, the NDFA and Eriugena will hold a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event to provide information on supply chain opportunities for Small and Medium Enterprises interested in becoming involved in the project. Details of the event will be published on the NDFA and Enterprise Ireland websites in due course.
The NDFA’s role in this project is as the procuring body and financial adviser for and on behalf of the Department of Education and Skills who are the Sanctioning Authority with the Grangegorman Development Agency as Sponsoring Agency and working in partnership with Dublin Institute of Technology.
