$55m Ultimo Public School

This $55 million, 5 story School accommodates 800 students from Kindergarten to Year 6. The new school comprises ‘state of the art’ collaborative learning spaces, shared educational facilities, open play spaces, auditorium and landscaped, rooftop playgrounds. The use of BIM software enabled full service and structure integration.

The school includes:

• 30 new home bases arranged with direct connection to playgrounds for outdoor learning, to capture natural light, views of the playgrounds and natural ventilation;
• Large multi-level library space;
• Lower, middle and upper level play grounds and basketball court;
• A new multi-purpose hall;
• Staff administration and support spaces;
• Large open Covered Outdoor Learning Area (COLA) on the top level to double as a community space out of school hours, especially on the weekends;
• Canteen; and
• Outside of Hours School Care (OOSH).

This high profile project was under heavy political and community scrutiny and Hindmarsh has had to ensure all of our activities are collaborated and communicated with many different types of  stakeholders. The works were also undertaken in a highly visible location, and within constricting confines of an inner city locale. The uninterrupted progress on this project was achieved through the development and implementation of our Stakeholder Management Processes, supplemented with continuous open and honest communications to all affected parties.
