UCD Student Centre 2

Architects: Fitzgerald Kavanagh and Partners
Client: UCD Student Services
Value: €50m

The Student Centre 2 at UCD was officially opened and delivered to the client in June 2012. This landmark learning and leisure facility incorporates many acoustically critical spaces to include the Garret Fitzgerald Debating Chamber, Drama Theatre, Radio Studio, TV Studio, Cinema, Seminar Room, Medical Centre, Gym, 50m Swimming Pool and Tepidarium. The nature of use of the facility dictates that many acoustically sensitive spaces are in close proximity to high activity areas. In depth room acoustic design, innovative sound insulation strategy and detailed acoustic design principals have been combined to allow learning and leisure aspects to coexist in unity throughout Student Centre 2.
