Actavo Modular designed, fabricated and installed a 36 no. module building for Coláiste Phádraig in Lucan, Dublin. This is one of a number of modular school projects undertaken by Actavo Modular under the Department of Education & Skills Modular Volumetric Accommodation Framework.
Scope of works
Actavo Modular provided 1,350m2 of modular school accommodation. The scope of works included 500m of haul road; nearly a kilometre of Heras fencing to secure the site; Actavo staff site set up; 80 no. foundation pads; watermain and public surface water diversions.
- All works met project programme timelines and budget.
- The project was successfully delivered over 3 days with no disruption to the live school environment.
Solutions to challenges
- The 80 no. foundations incorporated frost blankets and insulated shuttering due to the low temperatures in December, with design engineers’ specifications being met in all areas.
- The school is located in a residential area. In order to access the new buildings on campus, Modular provided a haul road from the rear of the school perimeter for all deliveries and traffic management.
- Due to working in a live school environment, Actavo Modular undertook extra security measures including the provision of 1,000m of Heras fencing to secure the construction site and maintained a constant safety perimeter.
Benefits to client
- Actavo Modular added 1,350m2 of additional modern school accommodation with no disruption to daily school operations.
- Actavo Modular has a solid track record in the education sector, specialising in the design, construction, installation, and maintenance of high-quality turn-key, modular buildings for schools, colleges and creches throughout Ireland and the UK.
- There was very little disruption to the school and community as 60–80% of the works were carried out off-site.
- Our educational buildings provide a bright and comfortable teaching environment.
“We were very impressed with the work carried out by Actavo Modular. All the preparatory work as well as the installation was done in a live school environment during the school term, with little or no disruption to school operations.”
