The “Extension to Scoil Triest Special School” project is located to the rear of the existing Scoil Triest School within the grounds of the Brothers of Charity Services in Lota, Glanmire, Co. Cork.
Scoil Triest Special School provides education services to children and adolescents who suffer from autism and related communications disorders. This new building provided a permanent extension to the main school building in order to replace the existing rented prefabricated accommodation which was developed in 2007.

- 3 Classrooms with associated Quiet Rooms and Stores
- 3 No. Student WCs including, 1 No. Universal Access WC, 2 No. Staff WCs
- Daily Skills Living Room

MHL provided Engineering Services and project management from planning permission to handover of building to the client. MHL also carried out the Fire Certification and Disability Access Certification. The architects for this scheme were KOBW Architects.
