Proud Partner of the Western Force
The development is located on the site of the existing sports courts directly adjacent to the junior oval and western site boundary with the neighboring Methodist Ladies College. A new 3 storey preparatory school and associated external works formed the basis of the contract works, with a number of provisional items that were added to the scheme as works progressed. Construction consisted of the following elements:
In–situ concrete frame incorporating “bubbledeck” slabs.
Pre-cast column and wall elements “white”.
Structural steel roof frame and external façade support framework.
Load bearing cavity filled blockwork, external and internal coloured face blockwork.
Equitone façade cladding incorporating aluminium windows, doors and curtain walling.
Full service installation including new SMSB installation, sewer connection to Sterling Highway, fully integrated security and AV installations.
High level internal finishes including but not limited to acoustic baffled ceilings, integrated teaching wall joinery fixtures, feature wall cladding in timber, aluminium, steelwork, stainless steel “millennium” cladding to tech hub, natural stone cladding to main entrance area and tiled walkways and washroom areas.
Full turnkey FFE supply and installation.
Hard and soft landscaping including feature play equipment and secure play deck to the northern aspect.Externally expressed structural steelwork support framing carried a bespoke perforated and folded screen that ran the entire length of the eastern elevation, this was supported by a stainless-steel wire carrier system, so effectively giving the impression of a “floating” element. Access was afforded through the existing school entry and student movements were carefully managed with a duel gate arrangement to ensure risks during busy periods were mitigated. Close relationship with the school facilities department was required as many of the new systems were to be integrated into existing operational elements. This process was managed though open communication channels, regular meetings and collaborative design discussions to ensure all items were captured prior to install. Re-instatement work to the oval and associated external works, additions of a new visitor car park and feature seating, hard landscaping and planting completed the second phase of the project. The demolition of an existing teaching block was required following completion of the main building which was required to facilitate the second phase completion.
