Seaview High School – Advanced Manufacturing Refurbishment
This project was tendered as 2 packages of works in 2 separate buildings and was part of the initial STEM Works (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) which was being rolled out by the SA Government. This is part of a state-wide shift in the way in which students at every level of schooling develop knowledge, skills and understanding in STEM subjects.
The works also incorporated physics and chemistry facilities and the refurbishment and redevelopment of a technology workshop, full refurbishment of science laboratories, digital photography room, presentation space, classrooms, sound room and teacher areas.
This work was carried out within an operating school environment over a number of terms, while ensuring minimal disruption to teaching and learning and maintaining a high level of safety to students and teachers while works were underway.
The scope of work within the technology workshop included the refurbishment of existing timber flooring, and a completely new fitout including ducted extraction system and all services to house existing and new state of the art machinery. This scope also increased and included additional full replacement of the aluminium glazed façade to the Workshop.
The works to the two-storey science building included new laboratories, fitted out with new glazed partition walls, new ceilings throughout and in the end the replacement of the existing roof and roof safety systems. An entirely new fire main which surrounds the whole school and services all the hydrants and fire hose reels scattered through the entire site was also installed as part of the works during the school terms.
The final outcome is one of a high level of finish and has created a number of modern and pleasant spaces which offer a much-improved learning environment and one which TSDB and the school are proud of.
