The Ponds School
The Ponds School consists of three schools; a secondary school, primary school and a school for kids with special needs. The school is across two disparate sites, with the special needs school site selected based on topographical requirements. The project supported a major new land release in Western Sydney, the North West Growth Area.
Northrop invested considerable time during the tender phase, providing an optimised engineering solution. This assisted Richard Crookes Constructions in winning the project with a competitive tender.
Speed was crucial to this project. Amending the concept design presented by them using innovative structural engineering analysis. We were able to optimise the design and reduce construction costs.
Our close partnership with RCC meant that we could respond quickly to potential cost overruns before they occurred.
