Minister for Finance inaugurates our new home

Michael Noonan TD and Governor Philip R. Lane

The Central Bank’s new Dockland Campus was inaugurated on 24 April 2017 by the Minister for Finance.

Michael Noonan TD joined Governor Philip R. Lane, members of the Central Bank’s senior team and staff at a ceremony in North Wall Quay.

On a tour of the building, the Minister saw how its design helped to maximise opportunities for collaboration amongst staff.  He also learned about the North Wall Quay’s green credentials. It is the first office building in Ireland to achieve the Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) "Outstanding" rating at design stage and has been shortlisted for a number of awards, including the Green Awards 2017 and Sustainable Energy Awards 2016.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by Central Bank’s neighbours from the local Docklands community. These included schoolchildren who had taken part in projects such as the Early Learning Initiative and Junior Achievement Ireland which involved Central Bank staff.  Other guests included representatives from architects HJ Lyons, construction company Walls and Dublin City Council.
