St Patrick's Cathedral Grammar School Dublin

The task

St Patrick's Cathedral Grammar School in Dublin planned a three storey school building and upgrade works.

This co-educational, voluntary secondary school is situated beside St Patrick's Cathedral, which provides an ancient setting for major services and special occasions.

With its origins dating from 1431, it was imperative that any cladding solutions did not diminish its timeless look but would only serve to enhance it. 

Our task was to provide a system that blended with the red brick and existing architecture to complement the building's beauty, whilst providing an effective, durable roofing and cladding solution.
