Located at the former Crows Nest TAFE campus, the works entailed refurbishment of the existing building and the construction of a new Multipurpose Hall. The purpose of the works is to provide a High School Senior Campus for years 11-12 that accommodates 600 students and provides a 21st Century Educational facility for multi-curricular achievement.
It was integral to the project to ensure that all detailed demolition, wall stiffening/ restraint and new waterproof membranes were established as early as possible in the project lifecycle, to ensure that new finished surfaces were not compromised by heavy structural works or water ingress.
Detailed demolition was undertaken in conjunction with services rough ins/ make good to ensure fitout works could commence as quickly as possible in the project lifecycle. Hindmarsh was conscious of the potential noise impact that such demolition works may impose on the existing neighbouring properties, and undertook all necessary steps to minimise noise by employing tactics such as: the use of rock saws to isolate excavation; vibration, noise and dust monitoring; and acoustic isolation through acoustic dampening screens.
It was integral to the project to ensure that all detailed demolition, wall stiffening/ restraint and new waterproof membranes were established as early as possible in the project lifecycle, to ensure that new finished surfaces were not compromised by heavy structural works or water ingress. The structural steel frame to the multipurpose hall was procured very early in the project life cycle to ensure critical path of the multipurpose hall was not compromised.
The tight timeframes of the works meant that all levels of the project became available to trades at the same time to commence fitout once detailed demolition and high level services rough ins were completed. Hindmarsh implemented a “Handover Procedure” to the trades for each area of the project to ensure that critical project sequencing was both adhered to and monitored closely by Hindmarsh so that any short falls in meeting Project timelines could be quickly identified and remedied prior to impacting upon critical path.
