Official Opening Howth Road School- Engineers Journal
Atkins were delighted to be in attendance along with Minister Richard Bruton and Minister Finnegan McGrath at the official opening ceremony at Howth Road National School on Friday 15th of February.
Atkins and Faithful+Gould were delighted of the be part of the team that delivered the recently extended and refurbished Howth Road National School in Dublin. This interesting project entailed the refurbishment and extension of the existing 3 classroom mixed National School on a very restricted urban site.
Atkins provided a multidisciplinary team including Architecture, Structural and Civil Engineering, Fire Safety Engineering, health and safety and building services and our sister company Faithful+Gould company provided our in-house building and quantity surveying expertise.
The site is approximately 1690m2 and is tightly bounded on all sides. The existing school building, dating from 1890, is built of exposed granite stone with red brick reveals around windows and doors and grey flat cement tiles on the roof. The church and the school read as one complex with a low metal fence dividing the sites.
