Project Showcase - Hornsby
Job at Hand
Construction of Childcare. This project was definitely one of the imagination. There was a plan involved but it did require skilled tradesman and to be able to think outside the box.
We had exactly 3 weeks to bring what was on paper to reality as the childcare was to open very shortly after completion.
What looked to be an empty industrial factory was to be transformed into a childcare. We started with all structural components but in particular the creek bed. This required stone masonry, carpentry, and plumbing to complete. The cubby houses and the sandpits followed as there were many tonnes of sand to fill the sandpits and no access for machinery we had move everything in by hand.
Once all structure was complete we had installed a shock pad over the entire play area as a base for the synthetic turf and rubber soft-fall which then followed.
This project required us to use fire doors at the end of long corridors as our way of moving material into the job, resulting in things taking time, thinking of ways to move larger material, and making sure we had the manpower to get the job done.
Working to a deadline meant that we had to come up with solutions fast whether it be sub-contractors held up on other jobs or delays in deliveries.
