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.

H & G Contractors Clients

What our clients have to say about our work.

H and G have been fabulous to work with again and I have highly recommended your company for future BCE projects. Your professionalism and care taken with every detail are very much appreciated.
Myles and the team at H&G Contractors have delivered two exceptional renovations of some tired classrooms and our Administration area over the past 2 years. I would highly recommend H&G to any school looking for a building team with exceptional communication skills, highly proficient staff, great attention to detail and a high quality final product
A short note to thank you for your work on some recent projects for Guymer Bailey Architects, most particularly for the residence at Highgate Hill. It was a difficult build on a difficult site with terrible access problems but again you delivered high quality work and with Andrew and yourself on site it was always a great working relationship. The clients are happy and speak highly of you all.
H & G Contractors was recommended to me for a building project. From the start I found Myles to be very honest and straight forward, no hidden agendas. The costing was done thoroughly so there would be no budget overruns which is a great help when the budget is tight.

The progress of the project went smoothly as per schedule. Myles is really hand on with the project and was available when I had queries as to the construction.

I would recommend H & G Contractors to friends and family for similar projects without hesitations.
H & G Contractors have undertaken a number of projects for The Richardson Group over the past 20 years. Projects included office administration, industrial, residential and civil construction. These were undertaken on both design & construct & construct only basis & all were done in a timely manner with equitable commercial relations and to our total satisfaction.
We were told building was stressful, especially if we were going to build on a steep site with poor access but H&G Contractors breadth of experience and meticulous planning took all that away.

From tender through to completion clear communication ensured there were no surprises. Any unexpected hiccups and hurdles were taken in stride without fuss. All of this was reflected in a final product that exceeded expectation. I'd recommend Myles and his team in a heart beat.
