Nagle Rice Primary School 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.

These schools were completed as large scale projects and therefore were time consuming and often complicated in design. NLCE acted as Mechanical and Electrical Engineers in the development of these six schools.
