Being a live educational environment, safety, minimal disruption and the hoarding around work areas were a key focus throughout the duration of the project. Prior to engagement, Taylor undertook an extensive review of the site’s specific requirements and environment and provided a comprehensive plan to ensure both student and staff safety was maintained throughout the program. To further ensure this and the continued operation of the school, the project was undertaken in stages.

Staff, students and the local community will benefit greatly from the upgraded learning spaces and facilities that will support the future learning needs of students.
