Cockram wins $13m school contract

The state government has awarded Cockram Construction a $13.4 million contract to build a new primary school in Baldivis, adding to the builder’s education centres portfolio.

The scope of work at the new school, Rivergums Primary School, includes the construction of an administration block, four teaching blocks, a library resource centre and a covered assembly, as well as providing basketball courts, car parking areas, play areas and landscaping.

An extension to Rivergums Boulevard in Baldivis is also included in the project.

Esslemont Cockram, a Western Australian subsidiary of Cockram Construction, will begin work at the school in February, which will accommodate students from kindergarten to year six, with completion scheduled in time for the start of the 2016 school year.

The contract was awarded on January 5 and adds to Esslemont’s history of building schools and providing refurbishment work for education centres in WA.

In 2013, Esslemont was awarded a $40 million contract for refurbishment work at Applecross Senior High School, which will be delivered in a number of packages throughout the year.

It was also awarded an $18 million to construct new buildings, as well as refurbishment of existing buildings, at Challenger Institute of Technology in Rockingham, which was completed last year.

The company also constructed four teaching blocks, an administration centre, library, canteen, hard courts and an oval at the new Hammond Park Primary School, which was completed last April.
