St Josephs Patrician College, also known as ‘the Bish’ is a secondary boys school based in the Nun’s Island, Galway. The school currently holds over 750 pupils, and following the  increase in admissions and ever growing classroom numbers, they required more classrooms to accommodate this. The best option for a quick fix, with premium quality is to invest in a prefab classroom solution. This means, no down time, little onsite works, less mess and more importantly no hidden costs.


KES Group are overwhelmed with the demand for modular solutions for the educational sector. This year our factory floor has been taken over with the huge demand for modular accommodation for schools near and far. We have completed  contracts for St Josephs, Birches, Coagh, Lisanally and much more. Now, we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded main contractor for the design, build and delivery of a 263SQM modular building for  St Josephs Patrician College, (The Bish) in County Galway.
