The Tyndall National Institute was created in 2004 at the initiative of the Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment and University College Cork (UCC) to bring together complementary activities in photonics, electronics and networking research. The objective was to create a world class research institute, which would become a focal point of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in Ireland, to support industry and academia nationally and to increase the number of qualified graduate students for the ‘knowledge economy’.


STW have recently been appointed to the Framework of Consultants for University College London Hospital.

In 2009 UCLH achieved the rating of number one Hospital in the UK, scoring 100 per cent on latest patient surveys.

Following the OJEU procurement procedures for such Frameworks, STW scored highest among all submissions of the final six companies selected to tender.


Scott Tallon Walker Architects have been awarded the ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Standard to control and ensure best practice environmental design for all aspects of the design and procurement of its new buildings.

The practice is the first Irish architectural office to be awarded IS0 14001:2004 by NSAI, which they have tailored to address both their own environmental responsibilities as an organisation, as well as the building design process.
