The development was part of the Rapid Schools Programme 2015 to deliver a fast track school within a 38 week construction period under a Design and Build Contract. The works at Scoil Caitlin Maude provided a new two storey 18 classroom school measuring 2795m2. Works included the provision of a new General Purpose Hall, a library/resource room and a SET facility, site works inlcuding the provision of two full size basketball courts, car parking spaces for 32 cars, and a number of bicycle shelters.

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. Immediately upon steel erection, 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 with a stunning new state of the art school complete with sports and parking facilities.
