John Wollaston Anglican Community School Upper Primary Redevelopment (2016-2017)
6th December 2017
The project entailed the part demolition and alterations and additions to an existing single storey classroom block, to create a dedicated upper primary learning centre with open teaching areas, a flexible breakout area, meeting area, covered outdoor areas. IT Support, dedicated primary music teaching and naw student amenities were also incorporated.
The classroom block to be redeveloped is located in the middle of an established and operating K-12 school. This presented challenges for safe and dedicated builder's access. A fenced access route for the builder needed to allow students access to the oval and managed pass through gates were incorporated.
The project timeframe required the builder to cornmence prior to Christmas in 2016 to take full advantage of the end of year school holiday period to establish the site and undertake the demolition component.
Being located in the centre of the school meant also that the builder needed to manage noise in response to sensitivities associated with teaching areas in close proximity.
Having a relatively tight perimeter area to the builder's enclosure meant that carefl_i planning was required for the installation of craned items including structural steel and roofing.
There was a cear outcome intended for the project, and the buider was provided with detaied drawings, specification and even 3D model images and video to assist with the delivery. A strong commitment to understand the complexities of the project was demonstrated by the entire project team including management, the site supervisor and contract staff.
EMCO Building displayed excellent organisational ability and communication. The standard of workmanship and finishes ara excellent. Inevitable carifications and variation claims were rnanaged promptly and at all times reasonable. At all times the focus was on the client.
We would welcome the opporturäty to work on future projects with EMCO Building.
Congratulations to EMCO Building, the Anglican Schools Commission and John Wollaston Anglican Community School.
