RIAI Competition Update: Planning Permission for New Loreto Abbey Dalkey Sports Hall

Published: Thursday, January 24, 2013

Construction of the new Loreto Abbey Dalkey Sports Hall is expected in summer 2013, following the granting of Planning Permission by An Bord Pleanála in late 2012. The international RIAI design competition for a new sports hall for Loreto Abbey Dalkey Secondary School, was won by Stefan Hoeckenreiner of Ambient Architecture in 2011. Ambient Architecture have since teamed up with Quinn Barnwall Buggy Architects and were appointed by the Board of Management as the architects for the project. In December 2011 planning application was lodged, and got approval by DLR CoCo in April 2012. Following an appeal by local residents due to traffic concerns, An Bord Pleanála upheld the Council’s decision and gave their approval in December 2012. The design team is now working on the tender documents and construction is expected to start in the summer school holidays 2013.
