The project consisted of the construction of a new 8 classroom national school with floor area of approximately 1523m², within the grounds of the existing live national school.
Construction consisted of a ground bearing concrete slab, finished acoustic & airtight blockwork internally with a Kingspan composite panel roof system.
The school itself consisted of:
- 8 class rooms all of which had their own “boys and girls” toilets
- A large library with folding acoustic walls
- 3 special education / resource rooms
- A large staff room
- A gymnasium which also contained a fully fitted out kitchen
- Basketball & Volleyball court and grass football playing field
- A staff car park
All the school toilets are serviced by an environmentally friendly underground rainwater harvesting system.The entire running of the school is controlled by a Building Management System (BMS).
Externally following the construction of the new school, the existing 1975 school building was demolished, and the grounds consisted of over 2 acres of landscaping both hard and soft.
Extensive alterations were carried out to the entrance to the school which exits onto the main N52 roadway, with new traffic islands, school signage, road resurfacing, new road & car park markings.
