Construction Studies

Killinarden Community School > Construction Studies

In our woodwork department we try to create a safe learning environment which allows our students to develop their creativity and their practical skills in as enjoyable an environment as possible.


At Leaving Cert’ level (Construction Studies) students hone their woodworking skills and the theory element focuses on all of the processes involved in building a house from obtaining planning permission onward. This is a continuation of junior cert Woodwork

Key areas of Construction Studies include:

  • Architectural Awareness
  • Structure and the fabric of buildings
  • The External envelope
  • Services and Environmental Technology
  • Materials and Processing
  • Design appraisal and Processes
  • Further development of practical skills
