NLCE have been involved in educational sectors at primary, secondary and tertiary level for many years. We contributed to the winning team on several major multi-site projects through our innovative competition submissions at bid stage. We have an excellent track record and intimate knowledge of the design build process, allowing us to provide a better value-added product to clients without the associated increased cost.
We have developed a large knowledge base from small two classroom extensions right through to 1000 student schools with shared community facilities and crèche. We have fully embedded BIM into our workflows to ensure consistency and allow developers to be reap the cost benefit of zero errors on site. With our knowledge and experience we have enabled the inclusion of mechanical and electrical systems into precast walls during factory production allowing for faster on-site construction times and less builders works. This allows for early introduction of trades on site and shortens the construction delivery program.
NLCE designed building services for over 10 schools on the Rapid Build Programme including - Holy Family School, Charleville; Fermoy Gaelscoil Limerick; Gaelscoil Mungret; Limerick City East Educate Together and Presentation College, Athenry. We also worked on schools on the NDFA Schools project - Nagle Rice Primary, Milltown, Kerry; Watergrasshill Primary; Galvone Primary School; CBS Secondary School, Midleton; Presentation Secondary Miltown and Cloughduv Primary school. We have recently completed work on Colaiste an Chlarin, Athenry; Gaelscoil an Choillin Primary School, Mullingar; Saplings Primary School, Mullingar; Ennis CBS National School and Colaiste Chiarin, Athlone.
At third level, our engineers have delivered upgrades to some of Ireland and the U.K's prestigious colleges and universities. London Business School, Dublin Institute of Technology, Cork Institute of Technology and many more. Recently, our team have also acted as mechanical and electrical engineers at both Teagasc and FÁS Laboratories.
