Project Detail:

Overview Castleknock College was founded in 1835 by the Vincentian Community. The Vincentians remain the College Trustees. The aim of Castleknock College is to enable each of its pupils to reach full development in a harmonious growth of the whole person. It promotes this aim of integral formation by many varied activities, religious, academic, social, cultural and sport. Designer Group delivered the electrical installation to this 170 year old refurbished building. Additionally the construction team added a link building, an extension structure comprising of state of the art science laboratories, new interactive class halls and centralised administration area. Works were carried out within a live campus environment. Works were coordinated with the school midterm break and temporary generators and power supplies were installed by Designer Group to maintain the essential services throughout the school for the duration of the 3 day ESB shutdown. The entire project was carried out over 4 phases during that time temporary supplies maintained power to the other phases. The adjoining buildings were occupied by teachers and students for the duration of works.
