This complex North East Corner Development, now houses the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN), a new state of the art Sports Centre and swimming pool.

This building provides a research environment by minimising vibration and providing close control over the environmental conditions. The building enables research to be performed down to the atomic scale and provides an excellent home for nanoscience research in Ireland. The basement provides an environmentally controlled, vibration-free facility that provides CRANN with an international edge in nanoscience research.

This project was 6,000 m2 in size and the building is a 5 storey over basement structure which includes laboratories, office areas, cafes, science gallery and lecture theatres. This project was completed on time and within budget on a confined inner city site.
