Richard Crookes Constructions has completed so many education projects from Preschool to University facilities that many of our innovations have now become industry standard.
We have completed over 100 educational facilities over the last 20 years for NSW Public Works, NSW Department of Education and Training, private and independent schools and universities and each of these projects has presented a new challenge.
Working within a school or University campus environment requires cooperation and flexibility. Our project teams balance the need to progress work with minimum disruption to campus operations. We endeavour to maintain a quiet, clean and safe educational environment during construction.
Our expertise in this sector has been proven through the Managing Contractor delivery of Building the Education Revolution in the Illawarra region. Our company was responsible for the delivery of 224 projects at 194 schools throughout this region.
