New Mill is a 160,000 sq. ft. mixed-use student living accommodation, located in the heart of Dublin’s historical Liberties. It features 400 bedrooms across 61 cluster flats in a 4-7 storey courtyard block, as well as shops, a cafe and commercial space for local businesses.

The primary goal for the $37 million New Mill development was to create a functional, sustainable, beautifully designed residence for students.

Praised for creating a new prototype of what student accommodation should look like.  

The standards and design outlined at New Mill paved the way for many new developments around Dublin City.

Windows Chosen for Thermal & Acoustic Performance

Our TB50 curtain wall system, ST80 high-performance windows with integrated louver panels and out ST80 rebated doors. Our ST80 window system was specifically chosen to meet the thermal and acoustic requirements outlined in the design stage of this project.

“New Mill is an extremely energy efficient building, and this is what we should come to expect from all new builds going forward. There are very exacting specifications in a project like this. From the point of view of the end users, acoustics were a major part of the design brief.”  Mr. Luke Gibbons, BAM.
