Construction of a new Science Block and classrooms

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Total Construction has been awarded the contract for the construction of a new three new science laboratories, two new male and female toilet blocks, three general learning areas (classrooms), counselor quarters, home room, offices and a commercially equipped kitchen area for tuck-shop use.

The structure comprises of combination of block work and structural steel for the wall and roof system and concrete slab (both on ground and suspended) and a Bondek suspended system for the flooring. The finishes include a variety of capabilities to suit the functionality.

OVERCOMING CHALLENGES

It is a requirement that the College remains operational during construction works. There are a number of procedural requirements including daily communication between Total’s delivery team and the College.

Transportation and access routes to the College are restrictive, so we have developed a robust schedule, ensuring deliveries do not interfere with peak drop off / pick up times.

INNOVATIONS

Total’s estimating team produced an alternative product and design cost plan for the benefit of the client. We will be able to utilise the most cost-efficient design, products and methodology without comprising the quality or functionality of the build.
