Callaghan Engineering were successful in being appointed to Lot 4 of the ADAPT ’18 programme for construction of schools.
Lot 4 includes extensions to St. Conleth’s in Newbridge (both Primary and Infant Primary schools), St. Mary’s boys Primary School in Maynooth, and a Special School in Navan. Both Newbridge and Maynooth involve extensions to existing schools with some refurbishment of, and integration with, existing facilities.
Callaghan Engineering have worked closely with the design teams to identify an optimal solution in each case and to present it to the Department of Education and Skills. The Navan project involves total replacement of the existing school. This will present significant engineering challenges on a congested site while still meeting all current TGD requirements. Where possible existing equipment will be salvaged for re-use. The schools are due to be completed mid-late 2018.
