Hayes Higgins Partnership are providing Civil and Structural Engineering Services and Design and Supervision Services for this project which is being constructed under the GCCC Form of Contract.

This project involves 2 New 32 Classroom (approx 4500 m²) Junior & Senior Schools and ASD Unit approximately 470m² on a greenfield site. One school will be a Junior Primary, up to and incl.2nd class and the Senior Primary from 3rd to 6th. 



The decision on the preferred options for the new school, presented in the Stage 1 Reports, was examined by the design team fully considering all the issues relevant to the Board of Management. This was a collaborative process between the Design Team and the Client’s needs.

Each stage included frequent interaction between all members of the Design Team, the Board of Management and the building users. As this project is a Type 3, the budget for the contract is greater than €5.0m.

         roadways and soakage testing.
