In 2001 DkIT acquired the adjoining PJ Carroll Tobacco Factory and the following year partial development took place in the Carroll's site with Plumbing and Electrical Trades Workshops relocated there and subsequently the opening of a "Bright Room" digital media editing suite in 2005. The same year a building for the newly introduced Nursing and Health studies was opened. In 2005 also, DkIT became one of the first urban locations to have an industrial standard wind turbine (850 kW) installed. It is the first large wind turbine in the world to be constructed on the campus of a third level institution.

The Institute has always recognised the need to sustain and develop this research base within its schools, of both the basic and applied nature, with a strong emphasis on research commercialisation and technology transfer.
