Nazareth Catholic College Stage 1

Background

Nazareth Catholic College located in the western suburbs, is comprised of a R-12 College, Early Childhood Centre and Integrated Services. Kennett Builders were engaged to renovate, expand and create new buildings to form a new complex for secondary students.

Challenges

  • The operation of a large site supporting between 60-80 contractors daily raised operational and safety issues and was managed in line with our organisational best practice work methods and OHS&W management system and certification
  • Due to the nature of the project, all sub-contractors needed to be interviewed prior to commencement

Outcomes

  • The project was completed on budget and on time
  • We delivered a new complex for 1,100 secondary school students including a new two-storey science building, a new chapel, a new two-storey GLA building and the renovation of two existing buildings
  • Conventional construction methods were employed in the form of steel framed buildings with pier and raft footing systems
  • The structure was in filled with rendered concrete block construction and aluminium and steel framed windows and doors
