A complex master-planned project which included major learning facilities and infrastructure development.
Paynter Dixon has been working with the Hills Grammar School for over 30 years.
During that time, Paynter Dixon has assisted the school to grow into one of the best independent schools in north west Sydney.
This has included drafting and developing a master plan for the school.
As the school purchased more land, the master plan was amended to meet its future needs.
Work has included the demolition and refurbishment of four school buildings, construction of a sports facility and the design and construction of an early childhood education centre.
The projects have not only included new buildings but also repurposing buildings to meet the school’s growth.
The projects featured:
- Multi-level build
- Specialist learning facilities
- Playground areas
- High-quality finishes
- Working in a live environment
The projects were completed on time and on-budget.
The development of the sports field was a major project, drawing on Paynter Dixon’s extensive experience.
Paynter Dixon worked with the school to purchase adjoining land and develop a strategy for the significant expansion that involved cut and fill across new land to create a rugby field.
Sandstone on the site was carefully cut to create large mass retaining walls.
The works also involved the creation of a new 150-seat grandstand and a change facility which could be used as a small function centre, as well as providing field lighting for night practice.
New all-weather multi-function playing courts were also built to cater for different sports.
Hills Grammar School is an excellent example of a long-term relationship, meeting and exceeding client expectations.
