Sunningdale Primary School Update

Sunningdale Primary School Update

28 Apr 2020

The construction of the Sunningdale Primary School commenced mid-March with over 25,000m2 of site vegetation being cleared prior to the commencement of works. EMCO Building has been working closely with the Department of Biodiversity and Attractions to ensure all native fauna living in this area has been relocated to a close and/or similar habitat ensuring minimal, if in fact any, impact to the local native wildlife to the Yanchep area.
The extensive site civil works has now begun with EMCO Building adopting a methodology to build from the lowest point of the site, building and filling areas up to required finish levels. The initial stages of this process have included limestone retaining walls, drainage, and the importation of over 35,000m3 of clean fill.
The first slab for Teaching Block 3 will be poured within the next week, closely followed the structural steel. Each building’s construction will be running sequentially, a week after another, to meet a tight programme, and see students occupy the Sunningdale Primary School in January of 2021.
Overall, the construction of the new Sunningdale Primary School consists of seven (7) buildings including Teaching Blocks, Covered Assemblies, Administration Blocks, and a Library. The School will also boast extensive recreational areas consisting of tennis, basketball, and netball courts.
