Details: This project involved the construction of a new national school at Kilcornan, Clarenbridge, Co Galway. The site of the school is on the grounds of the Brothers of Charity campus in Clarenbridge and involved converting 3 existing buildings into a new state of the art school. Each of the buildings was partially demolished and extended and fully refurbished so that each one was completed to the current Dept of Education standards. It includes 8 new classrooms, resource and admin rooms and a full interior specification incorporating new mechanical and electrical re-fit package. Externally it involves the upgrading of the existing waste water treatment plant and extensive hard and soft landscaping including new roads and car parking and pedestrian footpaths. The project was completed on time and within a very tight budget.
