Value €12 million
Value our Works €1.9 million
Dates Aug 2013 to Sept 2014

Project Description

This scheme involved the construction of a new two storey secondary school at Newtown Park Avenue, Blackrock, Dublin 4. The new school was designed to cater for 900 students.

All construction operations were undertaken in a live educational environment. Whilst the new school was being built the students were accommodated in temporary Portacabins on the site.

Initially KC Civil Engineering Ltd diverted all site services to the temporary Portacabins. We then prepared all school hard-standings, roadways, and footways to the temporary accommodation. Once the temporary school accommodation was all in place, KC then commenced the process of demolishing the existing school. All of the demolished material was recycled for reuse on site.

For this scheme, KC also constructed all site enabling, drainage, services, chamber & manholes, roads and car parks for the project. The contract was delivered in partnership with Duggan Brothers Contractors Ltd.
