Background

After successfully completing construction of three projects at Cabra Dominican College, including the gymnasium in 2019, Kennett was awarded the Home Economics and Chapel Courtyard development works. The project team consists of the same Site Manager, Project Manager and Architect as the gymnasium project. The successful project team combination was chosen due to our solid industry relationships.
