The Convention Centre Dublin was developed to provide a world-class conference venue in the heart of Ireland’s capital city, it is located in the Dublin Docklands overlooking the River Liffey at Spencer Dock. It was designed by the award-winning American-Irish architect Kevin Roche. The CCD won the Engineering Project of the Year in 2010 and won silver in ‘Best Overseas Conference Centre’ in the M&IT Industry Awards 2011
Sisk was awarded the contract to build the “£104 million” centre in March 1999. Our large on-site workforce was called upon in 2009-2010 to carry out painting and decorative works to all areas including a 4,500 square metre exhibition and banqueting space, a 2,000-seat auditorium, lobbies, offices, back of house and 22 meeting rooms with high-end Tekura wall coverings and specialist coatings. We returned in 2012, 2013, 2015 & 2016 for smaller refurbishment projects.
The building is iconic for a number of architectural innovations, particularly the glass frontage and numerous curved walls. It is the first carbon-neutral convention centre in the world.
