    Description
    Objectives

    Capex development programme of the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, located in County Kildare.

    The purpose of the project is to construct and refurbish teaching, research and supporting facilities of the National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM). The project will include construction of a new university library, an ICT teaching and research facility, a building for educational sciences and student accommodation and service buildings. The aims are to increase the quality of teaching, learning and academic research at the university by updating the facilities. The ultimate beneficiaries are the students and staff of the university as well as the eventual employers of the graduates and wider society in Ireland.

    Environmental aspects
    Procurement

    Universities and research institutions are not specifically mentioned in the directive on Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). An EIA is therefore not required in accordance with the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU. However, parts of the investment cover the construction of new facilities and therefore may be covered by Annex II of the directive in relation to urban development. The Bank’s services will verify during appraisal whether an EIA is required for any component of the project. Potential impacts on Natura 2000 conservation sites as well as operating procedures and systems related to animal testing, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), biosafety hazards and waste management will also be checked.

    The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Dir. 2004/18/EEC and/or 2004/17/EEC as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC), as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where required.
