The details

Works commenced in the school holidays when we were able to undertake demolition and asbestos removal with an empty school and then continued through two school terms. Being a satellite school, Q effectively had three key clients to work with which included the Ministry, the Satellite School who would ultimately use the buildings, and the Host School, who we liaised with on all site logistics, access, and safety during the works.

This project was a huge success on a number of fronts. The project was well designed, run smoothly by our site team, little disruption was experienced by the school, and the end product has been very well received. Windy Ridge / Wilson Satellite has already been used as an example for other proposed Satellite refurbishments and we continue to receive praise from those who use the facility and teach there.
