Demolition works at the St Rose’s High School on Church Street, Georgetown commenced on Monday with the tearing down of the aged wooden section and other relevant adjoining areas of the building.
When this media group visited the site, workers were breaking down sections of the building and clearing the area to make room for the construction of the new structure. While some parts of the building will be saved, this exercise will take approximately four weeks to complete before moving on to the next phase.
The destruction of the timber building will be conducted under the guidance of PD Constructing Inc.
The reconstruction project is expected to take place immediately after the demolition exercise by Courtney Benn Contracting Services Ltd, and will last for an additional 24 months.
The intended new replacement structure will incorporate many aspects of the original school building’s design and will integrate the design of the Marian and other wings of the property.
This includes the retention of the green space courtyard area, a unique feature of the school.
In February of this year, a $16.9 million contract was approved by Cabinet for the demolition of the St Rose’s High School.
