The works at OLSH, Darra were completed as a two stage project to help minimize disruption. The first stage was construction of the new Library in an existing undercroft area. This was performed over a tight 6 week period to allow staff to relocate the library from its existing location to the newly constructed facility before demolition works commenced. Timeframes were crucial as demolition of the old library had to occur over the school holiday period to minimize school disruption and ensure student safety. During the mid-year holiday break, stage two commenced with the demolition of the existing administration and library buildings. Some historical characteristics and plaques were retained to be reused in the new building. Several challenges were overcome in this stage; as the difficulty of demolishing an existing building on the property boundary with restricted access presented itself. Through clear and continual communication and stringent safety measures, the process was completed safely and to schedule. This made way for the construction of the new and improved administration building which embraces unique timber detailing and circular details internally, thus, providing a modernized learning centre while maintaining historical characteristics and school values.
