The Monaghan Multi-User Education campus includes a primary school, a post-primary college and a tertiary-level college of further education, all situated on a brownfield site.
The integrated campus accommodates a total student population of 1,700 and takes maximum advantage of shared facilities. A single multi-purpose sport centre services all three educational institutions and all-weather playing pitches, tennis courts and other facilities for shared use.
An innovative roof top play area for infants is provided on the primary school flat roof. Glazed walling around the perimeter of the roof eliminates any risk to the children.
The project has also provided extensive community facilities including a new 200-seat theatre. Waterman Moylan was appointed to provide full civil and structural engineering services from initial masterplan to completion of the project.
