Based at Merrimac on the Gold Coast is a new Catholic Primary School, Star of The Sea. Located on 3,032 hectares of land, the school has plenty of room for expansion. As such, Brisbane Catholic Education were seeking an experienced builder to provide a refurbishment and expansion to the highly sought-after Merrimac School.
The scope of works at Star Of The Sea included the internal refurbishment of 10 classrooms, staff offices and the entry reception. INTREC were also appointed to deliver the extension of various new buildings to create covered external learning areas, these now house an array of amenities for students to enjoy. INTREC Queensland also had the pleasure of delivering a new carpark for teachers and parents to utilise, and managed the landscaping works for the School.
The project team did an impressive job at overcoming various unavoidable obstacles as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the 2022 flooding in Queensland. The teams’ strong problem solving and communication skills allowed us to strategically manage these risks for the client.
Star Of The Sea was the first project delivered for Brisbane Catholic Education by INTREC Queensland and it was our pleasure to work on such a high calibre project for what was a relatively new client. We are excited to share all works were finalised in time for the school to commence in Term 1 2022.
