Burntwood School in Wandsworth, completed in 2014 recently won the Stirling prize at the Royal Institute of British Architects awards. The €50m School re-build project used striking precast elements on the facade and employed Twin Wall and Stair Flights supplied by Oran Pre-Cast for the project. The quality of Twin Wall finish was critical as the walls were to be left exposed in their final state. This quality is evident from the photo across.

The precast multi storey car-park at University College Hospital Galway is nearing completion. Precast Installation works were completed on the 8th September with finishing works hampered by the inclement weather since. It is envisaged that finishing works will conclude next week. The large precast beam and column frame was completed one week ahead of programme. Oran precast designed, manufactured, supplied and fitted a large suite of our precast products in this project and the benefit of this is clear when tight progammes are met and bettered even as was the case with this project.

Oran Precast designed and supplied the precast frame for the RIAI 2014 award winning school, Coláiste Ailigh in Letterkenny. BAM were the main contractor on the project which was the first of the schools built under the Schools Bundle 3 PPP Scheme. The use of a total precast solution allowed BAM to meet their very tight 51week build programme. The striking design puts to bed the notion that precast is only suitable for buildings employing modular rectangular shapes. The use of exposed concrete throughout the interior of the building meant that Oran Precast's twin wall product was ideally suited for this project.
