Martin Naughton E3 Learning Foundry, Trinity College

APA Facade Systems are delighted to supply our thermally enhanced, triple-glazed ST70 Hi windows and TB50 curtain wall systems to Season Master Double Glazing who are installing them on the state-of-the-art “Martin Naughton E3 Learning Foundry” in Trinity College.  

The six-storey, €45.2 million building is being developed by JJ Rhatigan. Located on the east end of the campus in Dublin City, it is composed of three elements: a stone-clad laboratory block (The Nucleus) that nestles into the courtyard of the neighbouring zoology building; an aluminium and glass clad teaching block (The Wing) that follows the geometry of the city, and an elevated, transparent element (The Lantern) which brings light into a central atrium.

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Coady Architects designed the Martin Naughton E3 Learning Foundry with sustainability at the forefront of their mind.

“E3” stands for ‘Engineering, Environment and Emerging technologies’. Its cross-departmental courses will focus on subjects such as smart cities, wellbeing, data analysis and sustainable resources.

The central theme of E3 is ‘balanced solutions for a better world’. E3 will be a crucial component in our transition to a ‘smarter’ economy, developing technological solutions that are more sustainable and more equitable in the use of the earth’s limited natural resources.

When finished, this 7,256 square meter development will meet the requirements of nearly zero-energy building (NZEB) and achieve BREEAM Excellent certification.
