Working under the NDFA programme, Lawler Consulting provided the mechanical and electrical building design consultancy services for the construction of a new two storey school building with linked single storey sports facility to facilitate up to 1,000 pupils at post primary school level.
The 10,042m² Presentation College school includes general classrooms, interlinked classrooms, specialist rooms, special needs unit, general hall, and also PE ancillary. Associated site works include services to external store areas, 6 no. hard play court areas, sensory garden, secure hard and soft play areas, car park lighting, and covered area for construction studies.
The incorporation of BIM technology at the early design stage meant that the building envelope was designed as energy-efficient as possible to manage the building long-term, Dialux was utilised for lighting design calculations, and Amtech for sizing electrical loads. An overall BER A3 rating was successfully achieved. This campus development was completed within the required 16-month project timeframe.
