Vaughan Constructions was delighted to have the opportunity to once again partner with Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak.
Our recent works at the school saw our team deliver a refurbished cafeteria.
The new 380m² cafeteria is a vast upgrade to the original space, with a larger commercial kitchen, cool, dry and freezer rooms.
Front of house areas include Quantum Quartz benchtops, LED displays, and feature timber battened ceilings. The seating area includes high quality finishes, feature walls, communal dry bar tables and banquette seating.
Works also included the demolition and construction of the entry to the Mary Ward building, including new slabs, extended steel framing and façade works.
A tight timeframe posed a challenge with a staged handover and a new entry to the Mary Ward building required completion prior to school returning in late January. However stringent time management and excellent teamwork saw our team proudly hand this project over ahead of the contract date.
Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak Business Manager, Tim Rowler expressed his delight with the new cafeteria.
“Great to be working with Vaughan again and a fantastic outcome for the girls, staff and broader community. The new facilities have already improved our capacity for functions, upgraded our student facilities and importantly createdan acoustic and physical separation between students on break and those in class,” said Mr Rowler.
Vaughan is still on-site at Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak as we have been engaged to also deliver the St George’s Redevelopment Project which includes the demolition of the existing two-storey St George’s Wing, including disconnections from the heritage-listed Mandeville Hall and Chapel.
The construction consists of a three-level piled basement including car parks, classrooms, workshops and theatre. There will also be an underground linkway tunnel connecting to the existing Mandeville Centre basement carpark.
The top three floors of the new building will include classrooms, offices, courtyards and open tiered seating provisions.
Totalling six levels, the new construction has a footprint of over 1,620m² and is due for completion in October 2021.
