St Kilian's Eurocampus

Project St Kilian's Eurocampus
Client St Killian's Deutsche Schule Dublin
Stage Complete
Description This 16-classroom building was constructed to A2’s award winning design. The plan was to create a new sustainable Eurocampus i.e. a school which could gather various nationalities with a view to promoting diversity and dialogue.

Fact File

Constructed for Lycee Francais D'Irlande, the new building contained 16 no. language classrooms, an extended administration area and a new shared entrance. These were facilitated within a new two and three-storey school wing, measuring a total of 2031sqm.

Project Details

The project comprised:

  • RC Frame.
  • Fairfaced Concrete cantilevered balcony.
  • Fairfaced internal RC stairs & walls.
  • Fairfaced internal painted blockwork.
  • RC inverted roof beams.
  • Lift.
  • Curtain walling.
  • Fairfaced RC cantilevered balcony.
  • Fairfaced RC external ramps and stairs.
  • Timber cladding.
  • The wing was constructed concurrently with the existing fully functioning German school, which was situated and connected within 4m of the elevated existing building. This necessitated a sensitive design approach and careful execution of temporary support works as the new building was being constructed. These temporary works were completed with no disruption or damage caused to the existing building.
  • With the school still in operation, on-site traffic management of Parent/Student car parking and the safe passage for the teachers and students (approx. 600 no. students) whilst entering and leaving the school was also required.
  • This project was successfully managed and completed - there were no complaints, accidents or incidents throughout the project duration.
  • Since its handover, it has received an Architectural Association of Ireland Special Mention Award 2009 and an RIAI Irish Architecture Award in the “Best Educational Building” category.
  • St. Kilians was also shortlisted for the RIAI “Public Choice
