In May 2007 McKeon Group commenced work on an extension to the existing DCU Business School. Located on the busy Dublin City University Campus the extension involved the construction of a third floor on top of an existing three storey building. The third floor was constructed using a steel frame and the enclosing walls were a glazed curtain wall.
The existing stairs were extended to the new floor by means of cantilevering the new extended stairs.
Part of the building remained in use during the contract and with a very short contract period, due to the new student semester commencing in September. A very tight programme was scheduled and adhered to with lectures going ahead as planned and all works completed by October.
