The recent Northbuild building project at St. Mary’s College, Toowoomba, including classroom refurbishment and a new Home Economics classroom, canteen and coffee shop has won a 2015 Downs and Western Region Award for Refurbishment & Renovation up to $1 million.
The new facilities are independently acclaimed as being some of the best in Toowoomba – rivaling even the best equipped commercial kitchens.
The project was delivered in approximately 18 weeks, despite some set backs. “One of the major ‘show stoppers’ for to the critical path was discovery that gas would need to be routed from an alternative main due to insufficient capacity from the intended source pipeline” said Civil.
“Substantial additional negotiation with designers and gas utilities including squeezing of standard lead times was additionally required to meet the project deadlines; it was pleasing to see what could be achieved with a shared spirit of cooperation.”
Northbuild is proud to have delivered new, enduring and cutting edge facilities to the St Mary’s school, in support of the education of this long running and important Toowoomba school.
