The builders are back in Birr! In October 2017 our building contractor begin refurbishing the I-LOFAR Education Centre and Control Room. The Education Centre will provide a space overlooking the I-LOFAR array for team meetings and visiting groups to be hosted. The Control Room is also being refurbished to provide modern office space for our researchers to work in. All building work should be completed by January 2018 and we plan on having a formal opening in Spring 2018.
The Education Centre refurbishment is supported by the Rural Economic Development Zones (REDZ) programme from the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and Offaly County Council.
