With demonstrated performance in delivering construction and refurbishment projects in live educational environments, Harris HMC was engaged to construct a two storey music, drama and dance building at St Francis Xavier College in Officer. Designed to accommodate a variety of music practice, performance and drama spaces, the works comprised a partial demolition of the existing gym building. During construction the team faced many challenges connecting into the existing building that required a flexible and adaptive approach to rapidly develop solutions.

The scope of works for the Stage 3b Performing Arts building included:

  • Construction of concrete ground raft slab, suspended concrete slab, masonry walls, structural steel roof and wall framing and external brick snap precast concrete
  • External wall cladding of precast concrete panels (with inlaid brickwork), COLORBOND┬« wall cladding and aluminium framed windows and doors
  • Installation of a series of overhead structures to support DMX stage and theatre lighting
  • External works and services including in-ground services, paving, fencing and landscape works
  • External upgrades including terrace and retaining walls and hydraulic, mechanical, fire and electrical services
  • Installation of bespoke wall and ceiling linings and acoustic panels
  • Internal finishes, carpentry, hardware and fittings
