We are experts in education design.

Educational Facilities

We are experts at the design of educational facilities. We have delivered hundreds of projects from small extensions of schools to full new University campus development.

The unique selling point of our services is that we spend time understanding the project, the site and the dreams of the educational establishment we are working for on each individual project.

Once we understand that vision we use our engineering skills to deliver significant value. Our designs are always economic, functional and integrated with the rest of the design team.

Primary educational facilities:

Primary schools are where everyone starts their life long journey of education. We have delivered numerous schools accommodating thousands of pupils. We understand the Department of Education design team procedures and can expertly implement them from site selection, phasing, tender, construction and handover. We are also chosen experts by parties delivering Public Private Partnership schools and rapid build school construction. We understand the particular requirements of the special educational sector and have delivered many such facilities.

Secondary Education Facilities:

We have delivered some of the largest and most complex schools in Ireland and the UK. From Malahide Community School to Kensington Academy. We bring special expertise in offsite and modern materials such as Cross Laminated Timber and precast buildings. Our specialist precast division deliver some of Europe’s most complex buildings and this expertise is brought to bear on our schools design.

University Campuses:

We have delivered educational buildings for the majority of Irish Universities, Imperial College London and as far afield as Sokoto State University in Nigeria. The buildings we have designed cross all faculties from extremely high tech facilities designed for Nano research with very strict vibration criteria, medical schools, business schools, Law buildings and sports facilities.

Current projects include University College Dublin new sports campus, Royal College of Surgeons city centre facilities and works in Dublin, Sligo, Maynooth, Letterkenny, Cork.

Our long standing history of educational building delivery we recognised when we delivered the James Daly Memorial Lecture on the theme of ‘Engineering for Education’.
