Monaghan Institute Students attend Architecture and Building Events in the RDS

The Architecture and Building Expo 2022 was held in conjunction with the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland.  It took place in the RDS, Dublin and Monaghan Institute Engineering Technology learners, CombiLift OEM trainees along with Entreka Building Design trainees were amongst those who attended.  The event provided the opportunity for learners to attend a Talk with Tomas O’Leary from “Out of the Blue”, who explained the benefits of passive houses in Ireland. During the expo learners engaged with exhibitors on the different possibilities that exist for the use of green energy. The day proved to be successful for the forging links with various companies involved in the architecture and building industries; and future plans have been made for students to engage through on-site and college visits.

The learners also recently attended Permanent TSB’s “Ideal Home Exhibition”. This is the first large scale exhibition held in the RDS since the pandemic and the event welcomed over 25,000 visitors. The students spent their time getting ideas and advice on everything from interior design, to furnishing and decor to energy saving and home builds.
