Eureka Secondary School, Kells, Co. Meath
Pleased to have started work on the Eureka Secondary School, Kells, Co. Meath
Work started on the long-awaited new school building for Eureka Secondary School in Kells late 2016.
The school will accommodate 800 students. O’Reilly Concrete were contracted by the Sammon Group to supply, precast walls, hollowcore flooring, precast stairs and columns & beams. Construction on the site on the Cavan Road is progressing really well, with the building expected to be ready for occupation by the second half of 2017. The current Eureka school, a Post Primary school in Kells, required a new fit for purpose facility. The new school building at this site will provide 8000m2 of accommodation over 2 levels.
