Project Info

Moville Community College in Moville, Co Donegal is benefitting from an additional 230 sqm modular classroom block. Completed in a colour palette that’s sympathetic to the stunning surroundings of Lough Foyle, standout blue hues feature on the modern classroom block.

Completed in January 2024, the project was manufactured offsite and delivered at pace but with no compromise on quality, taking just four months from start to completion.

The nearly zero-energy building (nZeb), which sits adjacent to the main school building, consists of three classrooms and two washrooms. Associated siteworks were also delivered by the team.

Delivering a sustainable building for the future, this highly insulated and airtight modular building has already achieved a ‘best in class’ BER A rating, which will contribute to efficiencies within the school’s future running costs.

M & E Project Specidications:

Heating - Plumbing, ventilation and installation of a Split Air Conditioning heating and cooling system. Room controls have been installed with ease of use in mind.

Plumbing - Gravity fed cold water is provided to all cold water outlets throughout the building with non-concussive taps to all wash hand basins within the toilet areas. Hot water is provided by efficient point-of-use water heaters.

Extract ventilation - S&P extract fans are controlled by presence detectors.

Efficient LED light fittings throughout, with programmable PIR presence detection sensors.

“I am delighted with the completion of the standalone classroom block that Asset Accommodation has delivered for our school in just over four months.”

“Asset completed this project in a quick timeframe, ensuring that we now have a fully operational, sustainable, airtight, and futureproofed building that’s delivering a healthy, learning environment for our students.”

Site Works

Placed on a sloped site, identified as being unsuitable for futuredevelopment, we were able to design foundations and a retaining structurethat maximised the space available around the school to provide much needed additional space.

Reduced dig to achieve level access and marry into existing sloped landscape carefully carried as to not to disturb mature surrounding trees in close proximity.

Extensive service runs done for final connections on site within live school environment.

New handrails and fencing to rear of new building.
