Great to see the structural steel erected at St Paul's Anglican Church, Carlingford. The project is due for completion later this year.  Great to be working with DDC Architects and the Anglican Church Property Trust.

Reitsma are very excited to announce that we have received the 'High Commendation award' at the NSW & ACT steel excellence awards for our project - St Pius X school Adamstown.  Working with Catholic Schools Office and SHAC Architects, we were able to deliver this stunning new library for the School. The stunning design includes expansive Aramax roofing, grand timber amphitheatre, seniors learning area, modern study and creation spaces. A towering forecourt structure provides covered outdoor congregation space and links to existing and new buildings. 

Well done to our Newcastle project team of Jamie Gavin, Michael May, Matthew Jackson and Arin Pandermann for their tremendous work.

We had the great opportunity last Friday to attend the opening of the brand new women's facility for One80tc. This building in Kurmond, NSW at the bottom of the Blue Mountains, will provide further opportunity to continue the great work that One80tc already undertake. Reitsma are proud to support the work that One80tc already do with treating addictions in young people and are excited to see the transformations in the lives of many young women with this new facility. 

Congratulations to Pasindu Siriwardena on the completion of his first project with his new role as Project Manager for Reitsma. Well done on receiving Practical Completion on St Christopher's Catholic College, Panania. The $1.0 Million alterations and additions project has been completed for the kids to start using the classrooms next week. Well done on completing this challenging project working with Sydney Catholic Schools, Pepper Property and JDH Architects.

Our Newcastle team of Jamie Gavin, Michael May, Lee Fox and Arin Pandermann are nearing completion on our $8 million Stage 1 re-development of St Mary’s Catholic College, Gateshead.

The project, initially to be constructed as a single stage, was progressively broken down into four (4) separable portions, to enable partial occupation by the school. Whilst it has been challenging to work in and around the occupied school environment, the client has expressed their gratitude in providing teaching spaces earlier than expected.

The overall project includes construction of new Hospitality and VET faculties, and a network of internal carparks, roads and other site infrastructure.

ReitsmaRFM was excited to work alongside  the Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta and Bow Goold Architects for the completion of the St Bernadettes Primary School at Castle Hill upgrade works. 

The project involved installation of a lift and lift shaft, accessible bathroom upgrades and two awnings that were fitted to the pick up and drop zone at the front of the school for staff and students. Reitsma worked closely with the school too ensure a safe operational environment for the staff and students during the construction works, which meant minimal disruption to regular operation of the school.

Thank you Laurie. Thank you for your tremendous 32 years of service to Reitsma. You will be missed on and off the site. Good luck in your retirement.

Great to see some additional completion photos of St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, Mortlake. The project involved the construction of a new 3 storey building which included 1 level of basement, and 2 levels of General learning areas, Break out spaces and Administration facilities. Located in the heart of Sydney’s inner suburbs, the project required some careful negotiating with the residents of the densely populated area to be able to undertake the approx 1000m2 basement car park excavation all the way to the installation of last piece of metal cladding to the external facade. This building is a statement piece of modern learning within an established historic area of Sydney. We are proud to have worked alongside QOH Architects and Sydney Catholic Schools on this project.
