Shellharbour Anglican College

Shellharbour Anglican College
New Music Centre, Drama Room and Food Prep Building for Sydney Anglican Schools corporation 

Project Value $2,124,000

This project consisted of the construction of a new Music Centre, Drama Room and Food Prep Building for Shellharbour Anglican College at 1 Piper Drive, Dunmore.

The scope of works involved the excavation to design levels, importing and compacting fill to support the new structure, installation of new in ground hydraulic and electrical services, concrete foundations and slab, Structural Steel main structure, Metal roof, Fibre Cement external wall cladding, internal fit off of the various service areas and external hard and soft landscaping. 

One of the main challenges of the project was building on an extremely sloping site. Managing site access and sediment control required ongoing assessment and modification. Similarly, completing the works in an occupied environment while the school remained in use for the majority of the project schedule required development and implementation of strong and stringent management systems. Key methodologies used to manage this included erecting appropriate construction zone hoarding and site fencing with printed shade cloth provisions, co-ordination of deliveries at off peak times, keeping a clean site at all times, maintaining open communication lines with all project stakeholders and co-ordination of weekly site meetings with subcontractors and suppliers.

The project was delivered ahead of schedule to the complete satisfaction of project architect and client.
