The refurbishment of 1960's School
This is a refurbishment of a school to resolve difficulties with energy loss, ventilation and water ingress. It involved the replacement of the roof and the refurbishment of the interior. The building is a 3rd level educational VEC facility with circa 1600 students. The project included the removal of asbestos elements, an upgrade of the thermal performance, the replacement of roof finishes (4100sqm) and roof glazing (900sqm), the renewal of the services installations and the re-finishing of the interior. It was a client condition that the college remain open throughout the works, which required that the works be undertaken over two phases to minimise disruption to students and staff.
