Construction has officially begun at the Mount Carmel campus of Columba Catholic College to ensure students at Columba receive the highest standard of learning facilities synonymous with Catholic schools across the Diocese.
W & F Constructions will construct the $5 million project, which will see upgrades made to both St Mary’s (junior) campus and Mount Carmel (senior) campus. The North Queensland based company has been involved in numerous school projects having completed works at Burdekin Catholic High School, Ayr and Gilroy Santa Maria College, Ingham.
The project, designed by Dillon Architects, includes the refurbishment of six classrooms on the St Mary’s campus, while the Mount Carmel campus will receive two new science rooms, six general learning areas and upgraded student amenities.
“Columba Catholic College will feature contemporary learning facilities, including flexible classroom design and integrated technology,” said Mr Dan McShea, Columba Catholic College Principal.
“Everything we do is directed towards better student outcomes. Investing in our school infrastructure is important to ensure we provide our students with the latest, quality education facilities so that they have the best opportunity to learn and succeed in their studies.”
The project is due for completion at the start of the 2018 school year.
