Project overview

Based in Dublin, Ireland, Point Campus is one of the largest ever off-campus student accommodation developments. The 2.3 acre site situated in a prime location in the North Docklands area of Dublin, comprises 944 beds in a mix of4-8 bedroom clusters, each with its own kitchen and living area.

With the development being Designer Group’s largest ever student accommodation project, the program for completion adhered to strict project deadlines. As a result, Site Manager, Sean Gorman, was looking for a reliable drainage solution that was simple and fast to install, without compromising on quality.


“I was impressed by Geberit’s high level of collaboration, not only with the pre-fabricationof the pipework, but the technical support across the whole project. The Geberit team were always on hand to help when needed, and even hosted a product training day for our operatives and senior management.” Sean Gorman, Site Manager

Sean believes Geberit’s professional and dependable approach was key in helping combat the challenge posed by such a large scale development.

Sean continues: “With close to one thousand bathrooms and almost two hundred kitchens, it is 50% larger than any Student Accommodation project Designer Group have delivered previously. The demand for a “right 1st time” and “snag free” project is a major factor in everyaspect of our work and we know that by using Geberit drainage products we will deliver quality first time, every time.”
