Hawthorndene Primary School is a medium sized school based in the semi-rural suburb of Hawthorndene. A single storey, steel framed metal clad gymnasium was built as part of the Australian Government’s Building Education Revolution (‘BER’), with the modern facility required to complement existing school structures.
Project delivery via the Design and Construct method was required, given the sloping site. Built from a Department of Transport Energy and Infrastructure (‘DTEI’) standard design, Partek faced a number of issues relating to the sloping site that the DTEI plans did not allow for. These issues resulted in the careful modification of plans and additional costs and timing implications to an already tight budget.
The main building comprised of the Gym, but also consisted of an outdoor deck to the northern side of the gym, a shade structure with outdoor sport floor and a handicapped concrete ramp and associated site works to access the lower playing area. As the works consumed a large area and were situated within the existing confines of the school, the project required intricate logistical coordination of all subcontractors and consultants.
Partek completed all the works to the utmost satisfaction of the client and within the timing and budget constraints set by DTEI.
