Oughterard National School Case Study

The architectural vision for this new build was to create a modern learning environment that would add value to the local community. The building consists of eight roof areas on a variety of different pitches totalling 3,400m². Aesthetics were also important to the client as most of the roof areas are pitched at a 20⁰ slope making them highly visible, particularly from the central courtyard area.

Project: Oughterard National School
Location: Oughterard
Roof Area: 3,400m²
Specifier: JJ Rhatigan
Approved Contractor: Deane Roofing & Cladding
Bauder’s Thermofol single ply membrane was specified because it is lightweight, long lasting, and visually appealing with welded roof profiles incorporated to give the appearance of a standing seam metal roof. The system build-up also included Bauder’s Thermotech Glass Insulation, ensuring the roof achieved the required U-Value.

Since opening this contemporary building has been recognised for its architectural excellence by many award-giving bodies, as well as being commended for its environmental efforts. An example of this being how its rainwater is collected in a reclamation tank so that it can be reused throughout the building.
