The Southern Regional Assembly were delighted to attend the Contract signing on the 10th April 2018 between dlr and the joint venture of SIAC* and Mantovani Group** for the new Dun Laoghaire Baths project.
The new Dún Laoghaire Baths, which has been designed by dlr Architects' Department, will see a new public café linked to an outdoor terrace with views over the Bay, along with studio workspaces for artists and new life guard facilities. New public toilet facilities at street level will be fully accessible for the mobility impaired and a new jetty and changing areas will provide access to the water's edge for swimmers and landing points for canoes, kayaks and other water sports equipment.
The development will take approximately 22 months to complete and will open to the public in the spring of 2020. The new Dún Laoghaire Baths will be a long-term, public amenity for the area and county.
