Dublin City Council is excited to announce the appointment of a multi-disciplinary Design Team for the Parnell Square Project, which includes the new City Library. 

Following a detailed tender process, the team will be led by Aecom Ireland and is made up as follows:

The programme for completion of the detailed design works is approximately one year with a commencement date in early 2023. The project will then go to tender, which will take in the order of seven to eight months. Construction of Phase 1 is expected to be completed in 2027. 

The appointment of the Design Team along with the on-going demolition and site clearance works, which are nearing completion, mark an important milestone in the delivery of this project. 

The scope of design works for the Parnell Square Project Phase 1 includes detailed design of the City library, design review and necessary redesign of the proposed works at the Hugh Lane Gallery and proposed works to the Georgian houses numbers 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27 and 28 and complete renovation design to house number 27 Parnell Square North. The design brief also includes tender analysis, construction supervision and handover to client.

Demolition works on the existing Amharclann building, which began last November, are continuing.
