Hamilton Young Architects were commissioned by the BoM of SN Bhríde to
design a new 1,600 sq.m. primary school to replace their aging facility in the
Co. Galway village of Lackagh.
The project comprised of the construction of a new 8 classroom primary
school, complete with new car parking, hard play areas and other site works.
The works also included for the demolition of the existing school building and
removal of existing prefabs.
One of the key requirements of the brief was that it could be expanded as the
community grows. The internal areas have been carefully designed to create a
range of comfortable, stimulating teaching spaces. Good acoustics, daylighting
and natural ventilation provide appropriate learning environments throughout
the school. Particular attention has been given to passive supervision, both
internally and externally, which enables flexible and independent learning,
good communication and sharing of resources between teachers and classes.
The school engaged artist Fiona Murphy to design a beautiful “Outdoor
Classroom”, which was funded under the government’s Per Cent for Art
Scheme.
Throughout each of our projects, we carefully manage our relationship with the
client and keep them fully informed of progress with regular meetings, site
inspections and formal reports. This project was undertaken during term time
and we took great care to ensure that disruption to pupils and staff was
minimised through careful planning and close liaison with the school’s Board of
Management.
