OHLA awarded the design and construction of four schools in Ireland for nearly 75 million euros
OHLA has added to its portfolio the design and construction of four schools for an amount close to 75 million euros. The initiatives, carried out in UTE and located in different parts of the country, have been awarded by the Department of Education of the Government of Ireland and will benefit more than 2,200 primary and secondary school students, including areas dedicated exclusively to the development of students with special needs
Lot 4A, for Scioil an Spiraid Naoimh Primary School (Laytown, County Meath), includes demolition of the existing single story school building and removal of the prefabricated buildings, as well as the construction of a new 4,100 m2 two-story building with 24 classrooms, a general purpose area, a special needs unit, ancillary teaching and staff accommodation, among other works.
The most notable project, Lot 4B, is a project for Belmayne ETSS secondary school in Dublin. The initiative includes the design and construction of a new 11,747 m2 building, with two- and three-story areas, and capacity for 1,000 students. The facility will include four special needs rooms, a general purpose area, a PE hall and staff accommodations.

In terms of digitalization, it is remarkable the implementation of BIM Level 2 methodologies focused on risk mitigation during the design phase, a more efficient management of the different construction processes and the delivery to the client of a digital twin to support the automated management of the assets during the operation phase.
