High-level Project Management Delivers an Exceptional Client Experience for New Build 

The Mitcham Primary School Gym project included the demolition of existing older buildings and gym to make way for the construction of a new gym hall with built in sports equipment, new student learning areas, teachers’ facilities, and student amenities. 

The project also delivered an extensive landscaping area including a new nature play area, decking and a covered outdoor area. Delivered under the DfE/Sensum Modular school program, this project was a mix of conventional construction for the main gym hall and prefabricated timber panelised walls and roof trusses for the amenities and learning areas.  

Due to no road frontage and a tight residential area, limited access was overcome by using a hybrid modular approach. Facade panels were fabricated off-site, complete with framing, window frames and cladding, allowing it to be installed on site in just a few days. The Overall duration of the project was 6 months, instead of the typical 9-month construction for a school gym.
