Project Details

This project involved the construction of a new Science Centre and covered verandahs including complete fit-out. The overall size of the two storey building is 1,200m2.

The project was of exceptional quality as evidenced by the written endorsements received by Alder from both the Principal and Business Manager of the College. The building was completed 4 weeks ahead of the 26 week contract duration, which enabled the Science Block to be handed over to the College in time for the commencement of the 2nd semester.
