Monaghan Education Campus


Allegro Acoustics completed all aspects of acoustic design for this 20 acre education campus which includes the following signature buildings:
– Garage Theatre (300 seats)
– Gaelscoil Ultain Primary School (16 classroom)
– Colaiste Oiriall Post Primary Gaelscoil (for 400 students)
– Institute for Higher Education (for 700 students)
– Sports Centre.

All educational spaces are designed to achieve the acoustic design standard as set out in Building Bulletin 93 and TGD-021-05. Allegro Acoustics oversaw the implementation of acoustic design throughout construction phase and carried out acoustic commissioning testing upon completion. The 300 seat Garage Theatre at the Campus is specifically designed so that it can be easily adapted to provide the reverberant acoustic response suitable for Music performance, or the clear and intelligible acoustic response suitable for Drama performance.
