Waterman Moylan was appointed by the Board of Management of the 600 pupil Presentation College as part of the design team for the school’s refurbishment and extension in Bray, Co. Wicklow. Our team provided civil and structural engineering services.
The development’s masterplanning and options study indicated that it would be better to replace the existing main school block in its entirety rather than upgrading and extending, as this would provide a much more modern and integrated facility conducive to purpose for relatively little additional cost.
The project included the construction of a new three-storey school teaching block and associated facilities as well as upgrading to the existing Sports Hall, and demolition of the existing school building when the building was complete.
The development was winner of the 2013 RIAI Best Educational Building Award.
