St Hilliers has been engaged to undertake early contractor involvement (ECI) for the expansion of Monaro High School in New South Wales. The school-wide upgrade is part of a 3-year plan to ensure a profound difference to the ongoing growth and development of the School.
Delivered over a 16-month construction period, the scope includes the demolition of 4 existing buildings to make way for the construction of a new Innovation Hub, Performing Arts Centre, Food and Textiles Technology Building and a New Special Education/General Learning Area Building.
In addition to the new-build construction works, a number of existing buildings will undergo significant refurbishments. St Hilliers will also deliver a new carpark, recreation facilities and a significant landscaping and external works package.
The works are currently being delivered whilst the school remains operational. This requires St Hilliers to work closely and communicate effectively with all stakeholders to achieve an optimal result for all parties, with safety at the forefront. During the establishment phase of the project, the team discovered that the multitude of additions and alterations to the School over the years had complicated the disconnections and temporary power set ups. By utilising a local contractor that is familiar with the School, St Hilliers has been able to maintain power to all remaining buildings at all times.
