St Francis Catholic College (SFCC) is a growing college that reflects the rapidly developing community of Edmondson Park. As part of a program to modernise the school’s teaching and learning environment, INTREC were engaged to improve the accessibility to the newly constructed buildings and the parking facilities to accommodate the growth of the school.
This project included the construction of the Central Ramp and Northern Carpark, and upgrades to both Guillemont and Vinny Road entrances.
The Central Ramp included the construction of a ramp and multiple staircases to improve access to the new building from Stage 4. This involved civil works, sediment control, the installation of an irrigation system, landscaping works, concrete works, retaining structures, fencing and balustrades.
Traffic control, pedestrian management and temporary fencing formed an important part of the project. Our team ensured the school operations were not compromised and the safety of all stakeholders was managed.
The Vinny Rd Entrance scope involved works on the cross over area from the road to the school boundary line and road connections as per the requirements of the local council.
The Northern Carpark scope involved the construction of a new cark park. As part of the works, a temporary ramp was installed to enable vehicles to circulate around the car park in a safe manner.
Conducting the works within a live environment posed many risks, but INTREC ensured that the learning of SFCC students went undisrupted. Our team had to consider the ongoing operation of facilities and buildings and applied rigorous systems and procedures to ensure the risks of working in a sensitive live environment were mitigated.
