Lucan Community College was constructed in the latter stages of the twentieth century to accommodate 500-600 students and associated staff. With the ongoing development of the Lucan area, demand for places in the school has for some time exceeded capacity.
Our design involves minor alterations to the elevations and arrangement of functions to the existing building and the construction of a new one/two storey extension of c.5,500m² to
accommodate a Special Education Needs Unit, a PE hall, teaching space and associated ancillary functions.
The project will also include the temporary relocation of one existing pre-fabricated building during the construction works, the removal of all pre-fabricated buildings at completion,
the provision of temporary car parking during construction and the provision of 92 permanent car spaces and 100 bicycle spaces, the execution of a new arrangement of site works to include 6 no. ballcourts, a secure play area for the SEN Unit, and the creation of a secure link to the adjacent Local Authority park land/playing fields.
