Rooney Group
Craighead School Gymnasium

Proud to work with Rooney Earthmoving on another community project. Construction began on the new Craighead Diocesan School Gymnasium in March 2017 and was completed in May 2018. The client came to us with the requirements of a multi-use court, viewing area, sports office, changing room facilities, classroom and refurbishment of their existing gymnasium into a library and classrooms.

The combination of precast concrete panels, steel and cross laminated timber, all pre-fabricated prior to arriving on-site ensure a smooth process of assembly. This accurate and efficient system lays the platform for the completion of the entire project within time and on budget.

These sturdy structural elements have laid the foundations for what has shaped up to be a superb gymnasium facility. Features include a sprung floor court, climbing wall, bleachers and mezzanine level overlooking the courts. The refurbishment of the adjoining Unwin building has transformed a tired gymnasium into a fresh new library facility that ties in with the new gymnasium.
