Errigal College

Windyhall, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal

Total SQM: 210

Project Duration: 11 Weeks

QQI Level 5 Post Leaving Certificate Suite

From the initial contract of works towards the end of the 2023 school term, to the building’s handover early in the new school year, this project was delivered at pace but with no compromise on quality.

Project Feature:

  • Building Energy Rating (BER): A
  • Low Carbon in Operation
  • Net Zero Energy Building (NZEB)

Consisting of three classrooms with adjacent toilet facilities, Asset Accommodation helped Errigal College expand its footprint in just under three months, maximising the school holidays to carry out siteworks and installation, whilst delivering minimal disruption to the school community.

Spanning over 210sqm, the low carbon in-operation expansion project delivered three additional classrooms for the growing College that are sustainable, have a Building Energy Rating (BER) of A, and are manufactured offsite to zero-energy building (NZEB) standards.

Project Info:

With plans underway to develop a new site and building for Errigal College, the school simply needs more space. September 2023 marked the College’s biggest-ever intake of first-year pupils, and in just two years, its school population has doubled.

In June 2023, Asset Accommodation was given the go-ahead to design and manufacture a three-classroom block for the new school term… in just eleven weeks!

From the order was received to the building’s handover, the project was delivered on budget and within the rapid timeframe. This included site preparations, enabling works, installation of the modular classroom blocks and the connection of services onsite.

The new classroom block was connected to the College’s existing drainage and sewerage, and a ramp was installed to ensure the new building adhered to all statutory requirements.

From start to finish, this was one of Asset Accommodation’s fastest installs, delivering much-needed additional space and facilities for the school community at Errigal College.
