Dunshane is based in rural Kildare and is a mix of new and old buildings, which presents a problem in regard to fire safety and certification for our enrolment with HIQA. We have recently undertaken a survey with our architects to find out what needs to be upgraded. The architect drawings have been completed, a fire safety survey has been completed and a schedule of works is being put to tender. We hope to be in a position to proceed to commence works from the beginning of 2015. The main project works will entail fire upgrades for Teach na Greinne, Dun an Oir, Moon Cottage, Apple Orchard and Apple Orchard annex. The estimated cost for the Fire Safety upgrade will be circa €170,000, to include fees and works.
We have also committed to improve the accommodation needs in the Community with works starting on two new semi independent living units and a refurbishment of a four bedroom cottage. All of these works will need to be completed during 2015. Any assistance from parents, family and friends would be most appreciated. Contact Clare for more details about helping us. Thank you!
