Gaelscoil Chluain Meala, Clonmel is a protected, detached three-storey over basement eight classroom school, built c. 1826. The historic building comprised of a five-bay central entrance block with slightly recessed entrance bay, with four-bay projecting flanking blocks, and a number of single-storey and two-storey extensions, added in much later years. Phase two of our works at Gaelscoil Clonmel involved the demolition of these later extensions and the complete restoration of the protected Gaelscoil structure.
The scope of works for Tom O’Brien Construction involved an array of meticulous restoration works of the three floor over basement building including a complete mechanical and electrical upgrade, fire upgrade of the building and major structural works to ensure the building would meet all current access and egress regulations.
Conservation works throughout the project uncovered many unexpected finds of a historical nature both within the building and in the ground. Our experience as a Nationally Recognised Heritage Contractor, as formally listed on the Register of Heritage Contractors, allowed us and our team of skilled subcontractors to bring this major project through to successful completion and handover.
