Assigned Certifier Services for DoES Interim Start-up Schools 2019
DFCE were commissioned by the Department of Education & Skills to provide Assigned Certifier services for the construction of start-up schools nationwide as part of their start-up schools bundles.
In summary, the project comprised the establishment of 5 new interim start up schools (primary and post-primary) in either suitable buildings or suitable sites (in temporary prefab accommodation) by July/August 2019. These new start up schools will be based in the interim buildings/prefabs for a period of approximately 3 years until the new permanent schools are developed.
DFCE successfully delivered their services under intense time pressure, along with an integrated Design Team including Rogerson Reddan Architects (PMQS), Healy Partners (Architects), JAK Ltd (M&E Consultants) and Barret Mahony Consulting Engineers. The locations included Wicklow Town and Newtownmountkennedy Co. Wicklow and also Dublin based schools at Pelletstown, the Goatstown/Stillorgan area and the Booterstown/ Blackrock area.
