The Principal of Scoil Chaitriona Cailíni; Imelda Whelan wrote “We were very fortunate to work with Asset Accommodation on the construction of our modular school as a temporary accommodation following the recent fire at our permanent building. The level of professionalism shown to us by Asset Accommodation staff was outstanding. They worked through very difficult conditions to complete a temporary school and admin block in just 7 weeks.

The end result was a wonderful modular building which is modern, bright, spacious, welcoming and warm. The handover took place on the exact scheduled date. We were very impressed with the professionalism of all the Asset Accommodation staff with whom we built a very warm and instant rapport. We would highly recommend Asset Accommodation.”
