This week I met with the VSBA, ROAM Architects and a DET regional representative to discuss the capital works project. Project milestones and key program dates were outlined, as well as tasks that are completed as part of the Asset Management Plan (AMP) phase 2. In phase 2, master planning and design will continue through to November with community consultation taking place this term. Architects from ROAM will be meeting with me during the school holidays for a site inspection and to plan upcoming consultative meetings for parents/carers and staff. Once finalised, these dates will be communicated through Compass, the calendar and in future newsletters for any interested parents who wish to join the conversation about the project. After the master planning phase has been completed and approved, tender processes and contracts take over before construction begins. With that in mind, it is anticipated that construction will commence in approximately 12 months time if the planning and tendering phrases run according to the current schedule. I look forward to working with the architects from ROAM in the next important phase of the project.
