City Library Project: What's Happening
The demolition of the Amharclann at the rear of the Georgian buildings is now complete. The new City Library will be located on this site.
Barnmore Demolitions were awarded the contract for demolitions. They were also responsible for ground surveys to the area following demolition and any archaeological investigation that may be required in advance of the commencement of the construction of the new City Library.
Great care was taken during demolitions to monitor and protect both the Hugh Lane Gallery and the Georgian buildings of the former Colaiste Mhuire.
A multi-disciplinary design team has been appointed.
The programme for completion of the detailed design works is approximately one year with a commencement date in early 2023.
Procurement of the Contractor will take approximately six months.
Construction will take approximately thirty two months with completion expected in 2027.
