The final of this year’s Sustainable Design & Research (SDAR) Awards was held in DIT Kevin Street. University College Cork’s (UCC) Western Gateway Building was chosen as the overall winner.
The Western Gateway Building (WGB) designed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects is the largest building on the UCC Complex at 25,000m² providing research and teaching accommodation for a range of academic departments such as Computer Science, Biochemistry, Mathematics, Pharmacology, Physiology, ICT and Cancer Research
The SDAR Awards is a joint initiative between DIT and CIBSE, supported by bs news, and sponsored by John Sisk & Son. It is different to other competitions in that it is intended to encourage research, disseminate knowledge gained from this research, and raise the level and quality of innovation in projects.
