The project incorporated the demolition of the existing staff offices, reception area and classrooms on the first floor of B.H. Travers; fit-out of these spaces to provide a revised floor plan to facilitate both the ICT department’s staff and the Library departments staff (previously only Library staff) including upgraded services throughout, new glazed partitions, acoustic wall and ceiling linings, carpet and vinyl floor coverings, extensive joinery including Corian benchtops and vertical timber battens and the provision of new workstations for all staff.
The fit-out also incorporated DDA requirements to ensure compliant access was provided throughout the level and also involved the construction of a new accessible WC on the ground floor of the building.
Works were completed primarily during the school term with only an acoustic hoarding separating the construction site from the active library. A site compound was constructed in a very tight space to provide workers access and amenities throughout the build which enabled the site operation to remain entirely separate to the school’s live environment. A strict delivery schedule was maintained and communicated with the client throughout the project to ensure the safety of the students and teachers was not compromised, and deliveries did not interfere with the school’s operations.
Carfax successfully completed the project within program in the live environment with no incidents or complaints recorded from any stakeholders.
