Contract awarded for Cambridge Primary School redevelopment

The $15.1 million redevelopment of Tasmania’s Cambridge Primary School has achieved a significant milestone with the selection of a contractor to deliver the first stage of works.

Tasmanian Minister for Education, Children and Youth, Roger Jaensch, announced that Vos Construction and Joinery has been awarded the contract for Stage One of the project.

“The major redevelopment of Cambridge Primary School Stage 1 works will deliver refurbishments to existing facilities and construction of new learning spaces, including break out spaces, sensory rooms and covered outdoor areas,” said Minister Jaensch. “The second stage of works will see construction of a new gymnasium and supporting facilities in collaboration with the Clarence City Council.”

“Extensive consultation with students, staff and the local community has helped shape the redevelopment of the school and will deliver high-quality new facilities for our learners and the community.”

Member for Franklin Dean Young welcomed the announcement and said he looked forward to touring the site in the future. “This is a game-changing infrastructure project and development that will create jobs and opportunity for Tasmanian families, while building more connected communities,” said Young.

“Importantly, it will soon provide a wonderful space for students and teachers to connect and come together in a fresh and engaging learning environment that benefits everyone.”

The Stage One works at Cambridge Primary School are expected to commence this month.

The Tasmanian Government is also investing $6.5 million towards the redevelopment of Lauderdale Primary School, $21.6 million for upgrades to Hobart City High School, and $24.9 million for the revitalisation of Cosgrove High School.
