A temporary school for 300 pupils
Before the works for the new school building could commence, BAM constructed a temporary school for 300 pupils, which was operational while the state of the art facilities were being constructed. The school was made of modular units, which were delivered to site and installed.
Addressing the challenges of COVID19 and materials delays
The school was two weeks before handover when the Government’s lockdown commenced. The impact was immediate. Overnight the workforce was cut in half and materials deliveries did not arrive as planned. Painting and decorating was a particular problem and we had to use staff from another sub-contractor to get the job done.
Before the lockdown, our brickwork supplier had a problem obtaining a specified brick from Belgium and they were six weeks late. We had to re-sequence substantially to offset this problem by moving our external and groundworks to the back of the programme and commencing on other works.
