The construction of two separate buildings and new car-park for this project were delivered over two separate but concurrent stages of 45 weeks and 52 weeks respectively.
Stage 1 involved construction of a new electrical trades and electrical engineering building containing twelve new classrooms with associated amenities and new 75 bay car-park.
Construction methodology of the single storey building was feature brickwork, structural steel, and all associated fit out.
Stage 2 of the works involved the construction of a new process and mechanical engineering building over two levels including two workshops, two simulator rooms, three laboratories, five classrooms and associated amenities. Construction methodology of this building involved load bearing brickwork, suspended insitu concrete slab, structural steel frame, external cladding of feature steel, aluminium cladding, and associated fit out works internally.
Unique challenges of this project included the incorporation of an existing workshop into the stage 2 construction. This included procurement and installation of hi-tech audio visual equipment; and an overall high level of services integration with the existing campus.
All works were completed on-time and to a high level of client and architect satisfaction.

The newly constructed Multi-Purpose facility forms part of an extensive master plan to upgrade the existing facilities at Trinity College in East Perth. The Facility was constructed in an active school environment without any disruption to the day to day operation.
The new facility consists of two areas namely a Gymnasium and a Link Building spanning over three levels. There is an undercroft car park and stores on the ground floor; state of the art Multipurpose sports hall consisting of two full size basketball courts, a kitchenette, classrooms and stores on level 1. There are further classrooms on level 2.
Access to the building consists of various precast and insitu staircases as well as an access controlled lift.
The building is situated in close proximity of the Swan River resulting in various technical difficulties surrounding the construction of the facility. Extensive dewatering was required during the ground works. The structure is supported off a vast number of precast piles to ensure that the building remains intact on the ever sinking surrounding grounds. Due to regular flooding and the high water table, extensive waterproofing and the provision of a permitter flood barrier wall also formed part of the structure.
The structure consisted of numerous polished precast columns and walls, suspended concrete slabs and a structural steel roof structure. The façade of the building include Alpolic Cladding, face brick walls and full height glazing.
