Construction will begin soon on a new primary school at Warnervale, with Richard Crookes Constructions awarded the contract for main works construction.
Parliamentary Secretary for Central Coast, Adam Crouch, announced this milestone on July 7.
“This represents the latest step in this major project which will provide high-quality educational facilities for families at the northern end of the Central Coast,” he said.
“The facilities will include 20 air-conditioned classroom spaces, a library, hall, canteen, outside of school hours childcare, toilets, a drop-off and pick-up zone, as well as staff and administration spaces.
“The school will be built to accommodate 460 students and can be expanded in the future to fit about 1,000.”
Crouch said main works construction would generate hundreds of jobs and pump millions of dollars into the local economy.
“Given the difficulties that COVID-19 has created, it’s vital that the NSW Government push ahead with job-creating opportunities, such as the construction of this new school,” he said.
“This construction project is valued at about $31.9M and will provide 225 construction jobs.
“I’m so pleased that the NSW Government is delivering these much needed facilities and I know our community is looking forward to seeing the new school start to take shape.
Richard Crookes Constructions is a family owned business operating throughout NSW and the ACT since 1976.
Other local Richard Crookes Constructions projects have included the $13M Wadalba Woolworths retail precinct, the $23M Gosford Hospital Health and Wellbeing Precinct stage 2 and the $33M carpark, and the $102M Wyong Hospital redevelopment.
