Straight A’s in design and construction.

Sarah built Westminster School’s state-of-the-art $10 million boys boarding house, which featured 52 bedrooms, 26 ensuites and landscaped outdoor spaces. The development also included a separate recreation building and two-storey house for the boarding master.

The project was constructed over two phases, with the first phase focussing on demolition and relocation of existing agricultural facilities before building work could start.

A structural steel frame was used in the main boarding house, with bondek suspended slab and cavity brick and block walls. Internal walls were comprised of a layer of fire plasterboard and a layer of fibre cement sheet for durability.

Sarah worked with the school to ensure there was as little disruption for students as possible. The team coordinated building work to suit a school environment, including constructing an access pathway for students through the building site.

“We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Sarah Constructions over two recent key projects. Their ability to provide a value service during the pre construction phase, proactive design options, full engagement throughout construction has produced an extremely positive experience.”
