Part of the BAM / National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) - Schools PPP (Public Private Partnership) Bundle 3 - this project incorporated the creation of a new 1000 pupil Secondary School, in Tramore, Co. Waterford.

This 1-3 storey post primary school was located on a sloping green field site in Tramore, Co. Waterford. The architectural concept is a gentle curve - echoing the nearby coastline and beach which gives Tramore its name - to the front façade creating a strong but welcoming entrance presence, behind which are organised 3 no. distinct blocks.

Accommodation includes classrooms, specialist rooms, PE Hall, play courts, playing pitches and car parking. The total accommodation extends to approximately 10,760m² on a site of 5.71 hectares.

The design is focused on achieving low energy, sustainable solutions through Photovoltaic panels, rainwater harvesting and BMS applications, whilst fenestration has been designed to maximise natural daylighting and ventilation.
