Development at St.Mary's Knockbeg required the integration of various floor levels of the existing building.
A model study was prepared to review floor level relationships (existing and new). The final scheme allowed the linking of all levels to the full rear block with a single lift installation.
Phasing requirements needed careful consideration at pre-tender stage. There was a requirement that the college would continue in use as a live educational establishment throughout the works. This was achieved using a combination of phasing and some demountable buildings.
One of the aims of the new development was to create a new stronger access linking the various elements of the college.
