Under NDFA Design & Build Framework Agreement, JJ Rhatigan & Company won the contract for Bundles 1 and 3 schools which involved the design and build of primary and post primary schools on 10 different sites comprising a mix of new build, replacement, refurbishment and extension.
Galvone National School was part of Bundle 3 Schools and comprised of the construction of a new two storey secondary school on a site adjacent to an existing school. The existing school which was on the adjacent site was kept fully operational at all times and noise levels controlled to suit the requirements of the principal. The new school is a two storey building designed in a U shape with an enclosed central area of soft paving play surface for younger classes and a large PE Hall projecting from the north of the building. There are 12 general classrooms, a staff room and all associated offices, Library, stores and toilets.
