Waterpark National School

Location:Park Road, Waterford
Client:Department of Education
Architect:C.J. Falconer & Associates

The development of Waterpark National School was carried out in two phases.

The first phase of works commenced with the removal of existing prefabricated buildings, followed by a major piling works package given the school’s location and proximity to the nearby river Suir.

This allowed for the construction of a new two storey primary school extension consisting of general classrooms, resource rooms, stores, toilet facilities, circulation spaces, entrance lobbies and all associated external works including site enclosures, road and footpath redevelopment works, safe pedestrian access, car parking, hard play areas, site services and landscaping. The project involved the creation of an intricate glazed link between the new building and the existing historic school building.

Phase two works incorporated the refurbishment of a number of areas in the existing school building. In addition. The existing school was provided with a new Principal’s office, secretary’s office, waiting areas, staff room and several refurbished classrooms.

The striking new extension along with the existing building’s refurbishment was completed on time before the start of the new school term to welcome back the returning staff and students.

Testimonial “We found Tom O’Brien Construction to be positive, accommodating, cooperative and pleasant to deal with on a day-to-day basis. They also maintained an excellent relationship with the school. We were extremely satisfied with Tom O’Brien Construction’s role as Main Contractor for this project and would recommend this company for any future projects.” – David Falconer, Architect, C.J.
