January 2016: Works underway at WIT

Tom O’Brien Construction are delighted to announce that we have signed a contract with Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) to complete the multi-purpose sports arena building at WIT’s Carriganore Sports Campus, and works are now underway.

The completion of the building will include a 2,000 sq m ‘aula maxima’ or great hall where large scale official WIT events can be hosted. This facility will also be suited to host a 2,000 delegate seated conference, 1,000 guest seated banquet and large external sporting, business and social events for the region.

The completed facility will provide up-to-date modern and scientific sports facilities, gymnasiums, teaching and learning lecture rooms for the Institute’s student and staff community.
