Scoil Mhuire Gan Smal National School / Architecture, Fire Safety


Bluett & O’Donoghue worked closely with the Board of Management to develop the alterations and extension to the existing school. The extension included a new Junior classroom for the junior class room and a SNU (special needs unit) facility. The works also included a relocated staff room and toilet facilities. Externally the work included a new soft playground and also a new car turning area, drop off lay by and staff parking. The school is located on a sloping site with fantastic views of the Nore Valley and Brandon hill. The extension had to be carefully positioned to link to the existing school while also taking advantage of the views and link to existing playground.
