Printing House Square Trinity College

The high-profile Printing House Square development on the Trinity College Campus at Pearse Street is currently at roof level. DBFL have provided civil and structural engineering services for the development, working with Bennett Construction to develop and design the structural solution which realises this unique and complex design. We are delighted to see the complex steelwork in place for the roofs of all three interconnected buildings in the development. The roof structures are multi pitched and multi-faceted with the roof pitches springing from third, fourth and fifth floor levels.
