Appointment St. Mel's College Longford
We were delighted to join other members of the Design Team, Bluett & O'Donoghue Architects, Patrick McCaul Environmental Consulting Engineers, MJ Turley Quantity Surveyors and Integrated Risk Solutions, at St. Mel's College Longford recently as we commence our design for the €6.5m refurbishment of the college buildings.
It is a very exciting time for the school. Past pupil and Downes Associates Managing Director, Gavin McHugh, is particularly thrilled to be part of the Design Team with an opportunity to be deeply involved in the renewal of the original college buildings to return them to their former glory. The development will include a two classroom Autism Unit, DCG Room, Computer Room, Home Economics Room, Music Room, Science Lab and a number of general classrooms.
St. Mel’s College, founded in 1865, is a voluntary secondary school under the trusteeship of the Catholic Diocese of Ardagh and Clonmacnoise. The Design Team for the project are required to provide all of the proposed additional educational accommodation in the existing 1865 building and adjoining blocks.
