INTREC were engaged by Schools Infrastructure NSW (SINSW) in a Design and Construct capacity to carry out two new build projects at Prestons Public School. SINSW is currently conducting $6 billion worth of upgrades within schools across NSW. This funding is set to deliver 170 new and upgraded schools, inclusive of the project currently underway at Prestons Public School.

INTREC’s knowledgeable team were engaged by client-side Project Manager GHD to manage the construction process, delivering contemporary and innovative structures for the school to utilise for learning and teaching into the future.

With innovation at the forefront, the first building houses 10 air-conditioned classrooms. The layout of this space was designed to create smaller areas within classrooms for individual tutoring and small group tasks, as well as large integrated spaces utilising forward thinking design features.

Beginning in March 2019, this new build project was accompanied by the extension of a hall, administration facilities, a new library façade and landscaping works, all delivered by our female-driven team. Included in this dynamic team are four experienced and skilful INTREC women, who took on the roles of Project Manager, Contracts Administrator, Design Manager and Compliance Manager.

Throughout the construction process, our team have worked closely with GHD to drive the long programme through staging processes to deliver a premium, innovative space.
