St Francis Xavier College, Florey

Total Project Construction initially won the $2.7M first stage of St Francis Xavier student hub building through the lump sum tender process.

During the construction period for Stage one, the second stage was negotiated with Total Project Construction as Construction managers in collaboration with Munns Sly Moore Architects.

The second stage extended the Stage 1 building outwards and upwards. Sub-contracts had to be renegotiated, programs had to be revised and early trades such as concrete, steelwork and external cladding had to be fast tracked.

Finishing trades were nearing completion for Stage 1 while early trades were starting for Stage 2. This required careful planning to ensure safety of workers and students, building security, protection of finished trades and ensuring that the school functioned normally and access for students to school buildings and playgrounds was maintained at all times.

To further challenge the builders, additional works were added to the project which required reprogramming, additional trades and disruption to the new works.

The new building incorporates predominately student services including 5 new classrooms, senior common room, student hub, student café; offices for student support staff, as well as a new staff room to cater for the growing numbers of staff at the school. Through various works to the interface between the existing library and new student hub, a strong connection to the school has been achieved, and an exciting example of educational design for today and into the future.

The project includes Stages 2 and 3 of a comprehensive master plan prepared by Munns Sly Moore Architects for the school and constructed to a value of $4.94M

Total Project Constructions have completed this very complicated two stage project to the great satisfaction of the client, the Catholic Education Office, the School and the Architects.Total Project Construction won the contract to build the new Student Services Hub, which includes a new senior common room, administration offices, staff room, and a new canteen and cafeteria.

During the construction of the hub, Total Project Construction were awarded the contract to fast track stage 3 of the hub which contains new general learning areas and meeting rooms with a walkway linking the middle school, thus giving the whole school undercover access.
This building has been nominated as a finalist in the '2013 Master Builders and C-Bus Excellence in Building Awards'
