Construction process

Western were tasked with the design and build of a 650 pupil post primary school, 16 classroom school, shared GP Hall and extensions to existing school for Department of Education and Skills. As Lead Design and Build Contractor, Western Building Systems were responsible for all design elements, site development works, mechanical & electrical installations. The building was a permanent rapid build school consisting of structural steel frame, precast concrete floors and block fair faced walls. The building was a complete turnkey solution which was completed within a 52 week programme.


Western carried out this project concurrently with six other schools as part of the Build Schools Framework. All works were carried out as Lead Design and Build Contractor. This includes off-site and on-site works.

The high standard of construction has also been demonstrated by Air tightness test results, thermographic test results and BER ratings achieved for each building  as follows:
