The Clare Court Children’s Centre included an architectural extension & refurbishment of the existing Child Care Facility. The refurbishment included major structural alterations, new services and architectural finishes. The extension comprised a ground slab, suspended slab, masonry, complicated structural steel frame, infill timber framing, metal and timber cladding, energy efficient windows, building services, energy monitoring systems and site landscaping works.
The works were required to be carried in stages to allow the facility to remain fully operational during the construction period. The stages required high level program meetings with the Council and user groups to ensure that adequate child care facilities were maintained at all times. IBC successfully delivered this project on program without major disruptions to the Child Care Centre and have maintained a very good relationship with the Council and architect.
