Actavo Modular, the modular buildings division of Actavo Group, has been awarded the contract for the manufacture of seven new steel-framed modular education buildings for Gorey Educate Together Secondary School in Gorey, Co Wexford.
The company aims to provide sustainable builds to the education sector that will enable schools to meet demands for the provision of state-of-the-art educational facilities, within specific timescales. The design, build quality, and aesthetics of these new generation Modular buildings results in fit-for-purpose buildings which will serve their local communities for decades.

Due to local demand for enrolment, this project had to be manufactured and delivered within a specific timeframe. Off-site fabrication of the buildings in Actavo Modular’s state-of-the-art 60,000 sq ft Manufacturing Facility in Kill, Co. Kildare has been running concurrently with the groundworks on site to ensure the programme of works is achieved. This is one of the significant advantages of modular construction over other forms of construction.
Upon completion, the buildings will contain general classrooms plus a mixture of practical teaching units, providing over 2,850 m² of accommodation on a brownfield site. Actavo Modular provides full turn-key service across all construction disciplines including civil, structural, mechanical and electrical across all seven buildings, and all site work and utility tie-ins located within the public realm. The accommodation is broken down into four Type 2 Buildings of 1,800m² each, two Type 3 Buildings of 620m² each, and one Type 8 Building measuring 400m².
