The Apollo Bay P-12 College redevelopment involved demolishing and rebuilding the junior school, staff area, library and home economics facilities and building more flexible, innovative learning spaces and age-specific play areas.
Our team was appointed by the Department of Education & Early Childhood Development (DEECD) to provide project management services and technical advice throughout the planning, design, procurement and construction phases at the school, in the coastal town of Apollo Bay, around 200 kilometres south-west of Melbourne. As landscaping and building works were completed, new facilities were handed over, with many being occupied months ahead of schedule.
Star of the Sea College’s stage three refurbishment project 'The Wave' created new science rooms, a food technology centre, classrooms, interactive shared spaces and staff and student facilities.
Ontoit facilitated the delivery of the fixed lump sum contract in accordance with the program and enabled significant structural works to be undertaken over the Christmas break, minimising disruption, allowing classes to recommence as usual in early 2016.
