A Home for Everyone

T.Y Construction Studies students in Colaiste Ide agus Iosef recently took part in the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) “A Home for Everyone” Competition. Their entries developed with the support of their teachers Mr Culhane and Mr Tiernan involved designing a house which took into account a number of different factors. These factors which tested the students' creative and problem solving skills, included sustainability, accessibility, affordability and technology,. It also gave them a taste of what a career in construction could offer. 

The school was delighted when the judging panel which included TV presenter, Dermot Bannon shortlisted one of the Abbeyfeale entries as one of seven teams nationally to make the final. This final was then  held virtually in the last week.

Thank you to Kenneally Murphy Architects who collaborated with Mr. Culhane's successful team in helping to generate 3-D model of their design.
