Works for the former Oxley Secondary College site redevelopment is now underway as the dismantling of existing buildings on site begin.

As part of the site development, Rosenlund Deconstruction Civil Engineering has now started the demolition works. This includes the removal of existing school buildings on the Oxley Priority Development Area (PDA).

Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning, Cameron Dick said that they have awarded the work to Rosenlund after a competitive tender process.

“Rosenlund has 50 years of experience and have successfully managed the dismantling of many large-scale Queensland developments, including the Gold Coast Hospital and Surfers International Beach Resort,” Mr Dick said.

The government also engaged a licensed subcontractor for the removal and cartage of identified asbestos from the site. These works will be in accordance with all relevant acts, regulations, and guidelines.

The Oxley Priority Development Area (PDA) is part of the state government’s Advancing our cities and regions strategy. The former Oxley Secondary College site is currently an exemplary urban renewal precinct.

Plans for the redevelopment include the construction of a new residential community within a bushland setting, aged care facility, integrated community facilities, and the relocation of the existing C&K Yuingi child care centre.

Member for Mount Ommaney Jess Pugh said this is an exciting time for Oxley residents. Moreover, Economic Development Queensland will conduct community consultation to ensure the delivery of the best possible outcome for the community.

“When works are completed, the 19-hectare site will offer a community hub, sport and playing fields, and will see the relocation of the Yuingi childcare centre to higher ground,” Ms Pugh said.

“Additionally, it will also feature space for 74 residential homes, with a large average block size of 800 square metres.”

Rosenlund Managing Director Neil Rosenlund said neighbouring residents can expect to see perimeter fencing installed and a temporary office set up on site.

Further works will include the disconnection of services and installation of environmental controls and tree protections.
