A MAJOR second phase of the redevelopment of IT Tallaght is included in a €200m Government and private investment in big building projects, 

According to Independent Dublin South West TD and minister, Katherine Zappone, the phase two development of IT Tallaght is one of just 11 projects being progressed nationwide.

 A technical appraisal will now commence of the work. New facilities will include a technical development centre, facilities for the culinary arts, new classrooms and computer labs. 

Welcoming the announcement, Minister Zappone said: “Development of IT Tallaght was a key budget demand of mine in recent negotiations. The quick response of the Minister for Education, Richard Bruton, is a tribute to the hard work, dedication and reputation of all on campus.

 “The project will go ahead as a public-private partnership, in line with the biggest education investments planned across the country. I am asking that the technical, planning and design phases are concluded as quickly as possible so as we can see the new buildings take shape.”

 Minister Zappone added: “The IT is a huge asset. It is a hub of education for South and West Dublin and through its strong reputation also attracts students from all parts of the country and further afield. Having a strong third level institution is key if we are to develop Tallaght as a ‘Smart City’ of the future.”
