Southern Cross Grammar
Client: Southern Cross Grammar | Duration: 18 months
It really surpassed my expectations. The space has such an open, sophisticated feel to it. I love the way the spaces flow together and spill out into open break out areas. There is so much natural light. The building feels like it belongs to the school and sits proudly, yet seamlessly into the existing site.
–Andrew Ponsford | Principal & Board of Trustee Southern Cross Grammar
Tandem Building Group was proudly appointed as the selected builder for the Southern Cross Grammar Senior School, at Caroline Springs. The works commenced prior to the commencement of the 2018 school year and included the town planning, documentation and construction of a two storey building of approximately 1,300m2. The project was delivered over 12 months and required diligent planning. The excavation works posed significant difficulty due to the soil conditions, however the use of high strength ductile steel piles minimised soil displacement and was fundamental to an accelerated programme. The use of post tension construction also enabled early access to the ground area, while the roof works were being undertaken. The team at Tandem has been credited with a transparent delivery model, which underpinned each project phase. Working collectively with all parties has seen a great result on the ground.
