The project was procured via an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) and Design and Construct contract and involved an early works package and fit out works within the basement of the existing Eldon Hogan Performing Arts Centre at at Xavier College’s Senior Campus in Kew.
The existing basement was a cold shell space with an existing lift shaft with no lift and concrete stair access. The early works involved civil works, the demolition of the existing internal staircase, construction of lift shaft wall, construction of a retaining wall, and penetration for lift access and stairs adjacent to lift.
Fit Out Works
Following the early works, the main works involved a classroom fitout including three teaching spaces, break out spaces, support spaces and amenities, installation of a lift to the external courtyard of the Eldon Hogan Performing Arts Centre to integrate the new facilities into the existing school building. The new space features a suspended timber structure in which the teaching spaces are located.
IBC maintained careful management and clear communication with the College throughout the works to ensure there was minimal disruption whilst the project was completed in the operational campus.
