Transformation of the former Oxley secondary school site is now underway as works to dismantle existing buildings on site begin.

As part of the site development, principal contractor Rosenlund Deconstruction Civil Engineering has started the demolition of existing school buildings on the Priority Development Area (PDA).

According to Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning, Cameron Dick, they have awarded the work to Rosenlund following a competitive tender process.

“Rosenlund has 50 years of experience and have successfully managed the dismantling of many large-scale Queensland developments, including the Gold Coast Hospital and Surfers International Beach Resort,” Mr Dick said.

Apart from the principal contractor, the government also engaged a licensed subcontractor. This is for the removal and cartage of identified asbestos from the site. These works will be in accordance with all relevant acts, regulations, and guidelines.

The demolition and removal of all existing infrastructure and buildings, as well as the remediation of the site, is expected to be completed by the end of January 2019.

Member for Mount Ommaney Jess Pugh said this is an exciting time for Oxley residents. To ensure the delivery of the best possible outcome for the community, Economic Development Queensland will conduct community consultation.

“When works are completed, the 19-hectare site will offer a community hub, sport and playing fields, and will see the relocation of the Yuingi childcare centre to higher ground,” Ms Pugh said.

“Additionally, it will also feature space for 74 residential homes, with a large average block size of 800 square metres.”

According to Rosenlund Managing Director Neil Rosenlund, neighbouring residents can expect to see perimeter fencing installed and a temporary office set up on site.

“We will then begin to disconnect services, install environmental controls and tree protections,” Mr Rosenlund said.
