Project Type

Extension and alterations to create a 10 Classroom school.


Athgarvan, The Curragh, Co. Kildare.

We started this project with a brief to extend the existing 6 classroom school and dismantle the pre-fabs.

The extension consists of 4 classrooms with en-suite toilets and wet areas. There is also a General Purpose Room/Gymnasium, Library, resource rooms, kitchenette, staff room and smaller facilities. The administration and principal’s office are located at the entrance lobby to the school to ensure control over access to the school. This area was originally a classroom and shared toilets.

The extension to the school was constructed to the rear and side of the existing, while the school remained in operation. The alterations and refurbishment of the existing school took place, in the main, over the summer holidays. The pre-fabs were removed then also and the car parking laid out.

Completed in August 2010, on time and within budget.
