This paper sets out the various stages, from tendering to completion, of The Convention Centre Dublin (the CCD) project, together with the construction processes involved in each stage. It is located in Spencer Dock, overlooking the River Liffey and was a Public Private Partnership (PPP) project initiated by the Irish State. The PPP company was a joint venture between the Spencer Dock Development Company as developers, Construction Management Partnership (CMP) as design and build contractors and 'The CCD' as operators.
O'Connor Sutton Cronin & Associates Consulting Engineers (OCSC) acted as civil & structural engineers for the project, working directly for the contractor under a design and build contract.
The Convention Centre Dublin was opened to the public in September 2010.
