The development of Bunscoil McAuley Rice in Co. Kilkenny consisted of a new 2 storey, 16 classroom primary school building constructed on the site of an existing primary school, including library and resource rooms, a general purpose room with stage area and multi-purpose spaces, ancillary accommodation, new car parking spaces, external ball courts and storage room.

The works were carried out in two phases. Phase 1 consisting of the construction of the new 16 classroom school adjacent to the existing occupied school. Phase 2 consisted of the demolition of the original school building and construction of new car parking spaces and ancillary areas. Staff at NLCE were involved in the delivery of both phases of this project.
