New Learning and Activity Hubs delivered ahead of schedule
Built Environs worked closely with Beaumaris Secondary College to design and construction an exciting new facility at their operational campus, completing the project 6 weeks ahead of schedule.
To accommodate the growing enrolment capacity needs of the school Building A - Learning Hub was extended to three levels for Art, Technology and Design, and new Learning Community spaces were added. The existing Art space was also converted into two new Science spaces, as well as landscaping, civil works, a sensory garden, art deck, delivery driveway access and a services compound.
Building B - Activities Centre was expanded from a single-storey Food Technology building to include a covered outdoor learning and an external amphitheatre.
- Completed 6 weeks early with 0 LTI's recorded
- Three-level extension for arts, technlogy, design and collaboration
- Existing art space transformed into a science space
- Extended food technology facilities
Cost and time savings with innovative installation
Built Environs used a helicopter to bring in 3 x 350kg condenser units, thereby saving cost and time compared to using a 250t mobile crane which would have required a local road closure for a full day, causing disruption to school students and local residents. With 2 weeks of careful planning, the incident-free installation was achieved in a mere 60 minutes.
Early completion with minimal disruption
Built Environs were able to complete the project 6 weeks earlier than expected due to our design efficiency and robust programming. In addition, all works were carried out in a way that ensured safe movement of students, staff and visitors around the school campus and the construction site, resulting in no recorded LTI's and minimal disruption to the live College environment.
