Substantial refurbishment of existing Post Primary School in Maynooth to provide a Special School for Special Needs Children.

The new facility incorporates 2 No Junior Classrooms, 2 No Senior Classrooms along with Lift Skills Room, Computer Room, Quiet Rooms and a large PE Hall. Outdoor facilities include Sensory Garden, 2 No Play Areas (Soft Play Area for the Juniors and Exercise Equipment fitted for the Senior Children). External insulation along with PVC roof sheeting were used to upgrade the U values of the existing roof spaces and internal insulation was fixed to the rafters on another area. The classrooms are well fitted out with TV screens for interactive learning and wet areas to cope with any mishaps.

The Civils side of it entailed new drainage form within the building and a new gas main and water main was brought into the revamped building. A new access road with car spaces along with an Astro playing pitch has been created. The School was occupied early January 2022 with the civils works completed and handed over early March 2022.
