Oran Pre-Cast has begun to install some of the contracted 5,600m2 of 250mm deep Hollowcore slabs at the new 720 pupil post primary school, Coláiste na Coiribe in Knocknacarra just outside Galway City. "Stewart" are appointed as the main building contractor.


The precast supply programme is scheduled to last from Mid September to early December 2014. Hollowcore slabs bearing on rising walls are being used to form the Ground floor slab. This solution is particularly useful where some ambiguity may exist over existing soil conditions. Once completed, this school will become Ireland's largest Gaelcholáiste.
