For Carrigtwohill Boys School, we managed 5 no x 80 m2 classrooms, plus road and access improvements and other ancillary works.

Project management included accepting PSDP appointment, classroom design to DES technical guidance, developing budgets with school boards, applying for planning permissions, fire safety certs, and disability access certs, contract procurement to GCCT contracts requirements, contract administration and construction monitoring up to final account and maintenance period expiry. We have also undertaken site capacity studies for future potential classrooms and due diligence checks for a combined future amalgamation of the two schools on a new green field site.
