Downlands College

The Downlands College project involved the refurbishment of existing buildings at the school in Toowoomba. Australis Roofing were engaged for the roofing package which involved the replacement of 5 buildings and 2 shade structures at the school.

Australis managed the installation of the roof sheeting and associated fixtures/finishings, the installation of edge protection, rubbish removal, crane and EWP equipment, and carpentry works for the site. The works took place over a period of 6 months, delivering approximately 3,500 square metres of roofing – all undertaken during operational school periods.

Australis was able to successfully deliver the roofing package and ancillary trades while maintaining safety of the fully operational site.
