Black & More were involved in the design, construction and management of a covered walkway connecting the Special Education Facility and the admin facilities at Atherton State School. The walkway consisted of a concrete pathway and covered link structure.
Black & More worked with the Department of Education and QBuild to deliver upgrades to the existing Admin and Prep Facilities. The design and management of this project presented some unique challenges. As some of the original buildings were constructed over 100 years ago it was critical that the external façade be left in its original condition whilst the internal layouts were altered to reflect current departmental standards. As principal consultant, Black & More managed the project through the design process and provided assistance and advice during construction.
As part of a larger vision for the school covered access, Black & More designed, documented and project managed a new all-weather linking walkway. The school can now access the Music Block and Covered Sports Hall via the new covered walkway.
Malanda SHS had outgrown their existing Tuckshop. Black & More designed, documented and managed the renovation and extension of the facility. The school now has a state of the art Tuckshop fully fitted out with high-end appliances, a walk-in freezer/cold room and a completely new and more serviceable layout.
Black & More have been so glad to be a part of the renewal of the Noosa North Shore Beach Campground. After a $3.2 million face-lift, the popular holiday spot has seen some significant improvements, with a focus on improving water treatment on site. A total of 43 powered sites are now available along with nearly 50 unpowered camping spots. Defined camp sites are now in place to better manage the camping locations. The campground will see a new camp kitchen, improved amenities and laundry facilities, along with beach showers, boardwalks and seating areas.
Another great project completed in association with Noosa Council!
