Urrbrae Agricultural High School
- Lump sum
Cook Building was engaged by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport to manage the redevelopment project at Urrbrae Agricultural High School. Several existing buildings and structures were demolished to accommodate two brand-new learning facilities.
A Health & Wellbeing building houses two kitchens for Home Economic classes, a partitioned classroom for eating and textiles, a dedicated Physical Education teaching space, an outdoor education classroom and an outdoor zone for student breakout. A new Humanities & Music building comprises eight classrooms; a music performance area, music classrooms and three practice rooms. This area also provides Home Group rooms for Year 7 students.
The gymnasium also underwent an extension and renovation to remove the mezzanine level to provide tiered seating, enabling whole-of-school assemblies.
Construction works were completed during school terms with the project team carefully managing the requirements and schedules of the school to ensure safety, security and minimal disruption to school operations. Prior to works commencing, an extensive risk assessment was conducted to identify all possible risks and ensure appropriate controls were in place so that no student or staff were subjected to potential hazards.
