O’Connell Street Public School

The upgrade works for the historic Kings School at Parramatta included new modern teaching facilities, sports court, 500 seat Hall, and recreation spaces for over 1000 students on the state significant site. The structural interventions required the complete replacement of floor frames within the multi-storey heritage buildings. This critical construction sequencing of works required temporary stabilising steel frames and trusses to help the existing buildings endure the significant upgrade works and ensure their preservation into the future.
