Project Description:

UniSA Magill, Samsung SMARTSchool

Client: University of South Australia
Project Value: $3,600,000.00
Procurement Method: Managing Contractor

UniSA Magill Samsung SMARTSchool - My experience with Harrold & Kite in a Managing Contractor capacity has always been positive, they have consistently delivered on time, cost and quality. The Samsung SMARTSchool project had an incredibly tight time frame and Harrold & Kite contributed innovative solutions to combine the modular construction with an in-situ build, to enable the architectural aesthetic to be realised. Harrold & Kite’s dedicated team of contractors worked right through the Christmas break in order to meet the deadline, continually value adding and working with the Architectural Team to solve complex details. Throughout the project Harrold & Kite mentored a UniSA Construction student and they safely facilitated staff and a primary school group to visit the site. They also maintained a perfect safety record, despite the number of contractors on the site, focussed on finishing the project. Harrold & Kite have never failed to deliver a project on time for me and all of our stakeholders are impressed with the quality of the end result, I can’t speak highly enough of them.

With great skill, dedication and collaboration Harrold & Kite successfully delivered the new hybrid built In-situ / modular constructed high-end building incorporating new classrooms, observation and demonstration areas.  Completely fast tracked, this project was constructed and completed in an astonishingly short time period and exceeded all client expectations.

The Samsung SMARTSchool is a technology rich group learning environment model and incorporates integrated observation studios.  The core building infrastructure and facilities cater for pilot innovative approaches to pedagogy and teacher education with visiting classes of school children.  In addition, it also enables multidisciplinary research including state of the art facilities for audio visual data capture, learning analytics and tracking outcomes.
