Scoil Aoife Community National School in Citywest, Tallaght was built under the Rapid Build Schools Framework 2016-2017. Built on a Greenfield site at Fortunestown Lane, Citywest the work completed by Western saw a new school building constructed in time for the 2016-2017 academic year. The work saw the provision of a new two-storey 16 classroom school with a 2 classroom Special Needs Unit.
Western were the Lead Design and Build Contractor on this project, responsible for all works on this project including all site preparation works. The building was constructed using a structural steel frame, precast concrete floors and block plastered walls.
While the structure was erected on site, we made use of our off-site manufacturing facilities to manufacture external and internal wall panels, windows and doors, internal door-sets, fitted furniture and sliding cupboards. This overlap of programme and full control of off-site manufacture of sub-assemblies ensures that the off-site components are ready to be installed on-site at the earliest opportunity. This allowed for the work to be completed to programme
This project was handed over to the clients in time for the start of the new school year as per programme. It was delivered concurrently with two other Lot 2 Rapid Build School Framework projects.
