Deanmore Primary School
21 Deanmore Road, Karrinyup
This two-stage development completely replaced the previous Deanmore Primary School, which was originally constructed in the 1960s. Deanmore Primary School was PACT’s first primary school project. We proudly won the project via a competitive tender process. The success of this project has contributed to a long and successful string of work in the Education sector. It was designed by Meyer Shircore.
- The 42-week program had to be maintained to fit in with school terms. The project was successfully completed on time.
- Work areas were distributed around a large site of 39,500m2.
- Works were completed around the occupied sections of the school. Works were carefully coordinated with the school to protect the safety of staff, students and parents.
- Asbestos was identified on site during the demolition works. This had to be removed during the school holidays, while staff and students were not present.
FEATURES OF DEVELOPMENT
The first stage of Deanmore Primary School involved constructing new school buildings on the adjacent sporting field, including four learning blocks, a covered assembly area, an early childhood centre, administration building and library facility.
A mixture of external finishes complements the new buildings, including extensive landscaped and planted areas, turfed areas (both artificial and natural), plus extensive hardstands and brick paving.
The second stage involved demolishing and removing the old school facility, as well as introducing new football fields, cricket nets and hard courts.
