The St. Joseph’s High School Aberdeen project involved the construction of two new buildings within the existing school campus with the school remaining operational for the full duration of the works. The works were won at competitive tender, with North heavily involved in value engineering to successfully bring costs back in line with the Clients budget requirements.
Both the buildings consisted of concrete framed ground and first floors, with post tension suspended first floor decks. Concrete columns extended from the first floor to integrate with a structural steel roof frame. The building was clad in a mix of compressed fibre cement, powder coated corrugated steel and stack bond concrete block work. Access to the main work faces was quite restricted and required substantial coordination with the school executive to ensure minimal interruption to staff and students throughout the contract phase.
North’s successful completion of this project further solidified the strong relationship between North, Schreiber Hamilton Architects and the Catholic Schools Office.
