CBS Midleton was a part of the NDFA Schools Bundle 3 consisting of primary and post-primary schools on 6 different sites with a mix of new build, replacement, refurbishment and extensions. The aim of the programme is to deliver new schools in rapidly developing areas to ensure the needs of the continuously growing community will be met and school places are available to those in that growing community. The schools are delivered by way of Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangements and by Noel Lawler Consulting Engineers in conjunction with JJ Rhatigans.
Noel Lawler Consulting Engineers developed an IES Virtual Environment (IES VE) Flucs DL Simulation Model to measure lighting values in the school. It was made clear that areas of study required higher levels of light compared to more common, general areas such as corridors etc. The number of windows and artificial lighting in these areas were increased. Other Mechanical and Electrical services were completed in this project including the installation of a school wide ventilation system and fire safety systems.
