John Pirie Secondary School, located in Port Pirie, SA, have a progressive approach to teaching and learning and pride themselves on bringing the community together through education and arts.
In 2019, the Department of Education sought to upgrade teaching facilities at the school, and we were engaged to undertake the construction of two new classroom buildings, providing flexible learning spaces and teacher preparation, demolition of an existing transportable building, extension of the existing school hall and renovations throughout, providing an improved inclusive education unit location.
This project was multi-disciplinary, and encompassed personnel from our Adelaide, and local Port Pirie branch, as well as sister companies for the roofing, cladding, and concreting.
This project involved a great deal of stakeholder and community engagement. We wanted to ensure that the local community, school students, and local youth and businesses were included throughout the project.
