The FKG Group were engaged by the Department of Education (DoE) to design and construct a new 4-storey building, 3-storey building, pump house, and refurbish two existing GLA blocks at the Queensland Academy for Science, Maths & Technology (QASMT) campus in Toowong, Brisbane.
Due to the operational nature of the school, FKG worked closely with QASMT, the Department of Education, and Ridgemill (Project Superintendent) to ensure all works were appropriately hoarded and fenced. Deliveries were scheduled so as not to interfere with the operation of the school, and a high degree of communication and consultation was engendered across the project.
At tender stage, FKG Group spent considerable time planning and consulting with crane and hoist contractors to ensure that the works could be carried out safely given the sloped nature of the site, the constraints from existing buildings, and the significant footprint of the new buildings.
The project performed extremely well, earning recognition from various DoE representatives. FKG were commended for our handling of community interest, managing design changes, tight timelines, and challenging site conditions, delivering a successful project with excellent relationships maintained.
The project was delivered on time and budget, to an extremely high-quality standard.
