Education & School Renovations

At DY Constructions Australia we handle many different types of education and school renovations and refurbishments within Sydney and also country NSW. We can handle your refurbishment from concept through to completion. Our project management team are experienced in refurbishments and renovations of occupied schools, where most of the works need to be carried out during school holidays. We can complete your fitout and refurbishment project in stages to minimise the impact to your students and your teachers.
Every education refurbishment is customised to suit your school’s specific needs. Some school fitouts are very involved with many different trades, while others are more cosmetic, involving just re painting and re carpeting. That’s why our school refurbishment teams usually bring together resources from both our interior design and fit-out departments, to ensure you get the best quality, and the best service during your education fit out.
We have experience across a wide range of educational and learning spaces including class rooms, libraries, auditoriums, lecture theatres and laboratories, and we are aware of how crucial it is to avoid interruptions, put safety first, and accommodate academic calendars and teaching timetables.

Refurbs During School Holidays

The safety of students and staff is our priority during refurbishment, as well as the ability of the school to continue functioning while works proceed. Our project managers are approachable on site to work through the challenges and concerns that may emerge on a school refurbishment project. With our experience in the education sector, we have developed efficient project management processes to better control the risks of refurbishing and building in a live school environment.
We are the live environment specialists, and have successfully completed many renovations in occupied buildings. We work closely with you to understand your schools  specific needs during the refurbishment phase of the works.
  • We firstly have a meeting with you and your management, to discuss how your staff can continue to work as normal during the school renovations.
  • We draft a Construction and Building program showing which part of the works will be done during the school holidays.
  • We plan ahead to minimise any possible disruption caused by the school refurbishment works, such as noise and dust.
  • We meet with your IT manager/specialist to discuss how to coordinate the works involving IT.
  • We ensure all essential services such as air-conditioning, fire protection, electrical and data services are operational during the school renovation works.
  • If required we can install sound-reducing hoardings between the works area and your operational school space. 
  • If required noisy refurb works can be performed outside normal school hours.
  • We then finalise the construction program for your school refurbishment, showing all critical dates.

Recent Example of a School Renovation

This school refurbishment project for Guildford Public School was inside their kindergarten hall. The project involved transforming an outdated and worn-out learning space into a modern and functional collaborative learning centre for teachers.
Our team built new partitions, painted the interior and ceiling, and installed new carpet tiles, creating an inviting and comfortable space for students to learn.
Our team worked closely with the school to design and renovate a space that would meet the needs of the teachers, while also aligning with the school’s budget and timeline.
We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Guildford Public School on this project and look forward to continuing to support the education sector with our expertise in school fit-outs and refurbishments.

We Design School Refurbs to Suit Your Needs

Good school interior design is one of the main factors in improving the overall wellbeing of pupils, as well as helping to attract and retain the best school staff and teachers for your school. 
Contemporary school design puts the focus on natural light as one of the key things you can have in your classrooms. Large windows are great when combined with window blinds, to control the light levels coming in to the school classrooms. 
Adding good quality artificial electrical lighting will help the students concentration, focus and attention. 
Making sure each area is bright, open and accessible is key in helping improve the various school areas. 
The learning environment can also be enhanced  with appropriate new colour schemes, in classrooms, hallways, school library, and reception areas. 
Our interior designers can can make the whole school and classroom refurbishment a positive experience all round.
DYCA transforms both government and private education facilities into stimulating environments for learning, development and growth.
