The development was part of the Rapid Schools Programme 2015 to deliver three fast track schools on Ashbourne Education Campus within a 52 week construction period under a Design and Build Contract. The works at Colaiste de Lacy provided a new two storey 450 pupil Post Primary School with a Special Needs Unit facility, a General Purpose Hall, library/resource room and other ancillary accommodation. Also included was an external Construction Studies covered area and storage space, a secure hard and soft special Play Area, three enclosed ball courts with fencing and gates to use as overflow car parking if needed.

The building on this project began with an off-site manufactured structural steel frame, with a poured concrete ground floor slab and off-site manufactured precast concrete 1st floor slabs. Monolithic floor screed/slab were poured early in the programme to allow trades to enter the rapid build process as early as possible. External wall panels were manufactured off-site and installed on site as the structural steel frame installation progresses and off-site manufactured insulated Kingspan roof panels were installed. This protection from climatic conditions enabled all trades such as Mechanical & Electrical and internal partition contractors to commence their works. While the structure was erected, off-site manufacturing facilities were used 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 ensured that the off-site components were ready to be installed on-site at the earliest opportunity. The internal finishes and fit out were completed as part of the contract, with finishes selected by the client. The building was completed to a turn-key finish leaving the students and staff of Colaiste de Lacy with a stunning new state of the art school complete with sports and parking facilities.
