Irish Construction Industry Awards Education Project of the Year 2015
Part of the BAM / National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) - Schools PPP (Public Private Partnership) Bundle 3 - this project incorporated the creation of a new 850 pupil Secondary School, in Doon, Co. Limerick.
The split level 2/3 storey post-primary school was located on a green-field site, and included classrooms, specialist / technology rooms, sports hall, hard-surface courts / playing pitch, car parking and pedestrian / cycle-routes into and on the site.
The building is accessible for all, broken down internally by means of a mall - an internal ‘street’ forming the spine of the building with zoned educational areas either side, whilst the ‘curved roof red building’ concept echoes the rural context of the Irish Landscape.
Photovoltaic panels, rainwater harvesting and BMS contribute to sustainable applications whilst the elevational-treatment maximises natural day-lighting and ventilation provisions generally.
