Project Auburn Primary School
Auburn Primary School and the City of Boroondoora required the addition of a new state of the art ‘School Hall’ set adjacent to the original heritage listed 1890’s main building and Infant School, both of which required major refurbishment works.

Given the significance of the Picturesque Gothic building, it was integral for Johns Lyng Commercial Builders to work closely with the Architect and Client to ensure the developments respected and enhanced the existing school in order to create a facility fit for the 21st Century.

Exceptional Management methods were vital in all aspects of this project. Intuitive and logistical programming was required by the reduced timeframe, extensive design changes, very restricted active school site and variety of works.

The knowledge, passion and innovation of all members of the JLCB team was pulled upon to dual manage the Heritage works with the New Hall Building.

This project was completed two months ahead of programme so the school could showcase the renovations and new hall for annual School Fete and celebration of their 125th Anniversary. This is the school’s major fundraiser of the year and attended by thousands of people.

Excellent client relations were maintained by our team throughout the build which was integral to the success of this project. Mutual trust, diplomacy and respect was at the heart of the success of everyone’s individual performance and more importantly for the overall outstanding success of this project.
