In 2019, Renokrew worked alongside McCallum Sather Architects on a four-storey building addition and interior renovations to the existing Adelaide Hoodless Elementary School.
It was the goal of the entire project team to successfully renovate the space while allowing the school to remain fully operational. The project scope for the Adelaide Hoodless Elementary School included extensive underpinning of the existing building foundation to suit for a new four storey elevator shaft, directly tied into newly constructed corridors at various levels of the existing building. The new elevator shaft was constructed in CMU and consisted of exterior insulation and brick veneer cladding. Windows were removed at various levels of the school and elevator entry points were designed and installed accordingly at the various levels. A new Vestibule addition was also apart of the scope and allowed for ease of access to the newly installed elevator at ground level.
The scope of work included overseeing the coordination of mechanical, flooring, electrical, roofing, and a host of other trades, including structural, and the delivery and commissioning of a new general purpose/passenger elevator. Renokrew oversaw the implementation of site-specific phasing and hoarding strategies. The hoarding strategies were especially important as, to ensure the safety of all involved, including maintaining a safe work site from the general public. The surrounding areas were perpetually cleaned to avoid the distribution of dust and debris, and we coordinated our Health and Safety efforts with those of the facility to guarantee that we were consistently maintaining a safe and hazard free workspace. In doing so, the project was a great success, and the staff and students were excited about the newly finished space and were positive throughout all aspects of construction.
