Shimna Integrated College

Hood McGowan Kirk LLP leads a large, multi-disciplinary team in delivering approximately 10,000sqm of modern, spacious accommodation arranged across three storeys and nestled within a beautiful hillside setting overlooking Newcastle.

The project involves complex phasing and decant arrangements to facilitate uninterrupted operation of the existing facility throughout construction of the new, and incorporates significant sitewide retaining structures on account of site levels. Hood McGowan Kirk LLP successfully procured the scheme in the midst of a highly inflationary, post COVID market.
