Ballarat & Clarendon College
Adam Ryan - Capital Works and Infrastructure Manager
S.J. Weir has been engaged by Ballarat Clarendon College over the past 17 years on a number of significant building projects.
In 2016/2017, S.J. Weir was contracted to undertake the redevelopment of the Charles E Richardson Physical Education Centre. This building project was complex and required exceptional attention to detail and day-to-day focus to achieve the outcomes required.
Heavily involved in the project from its inception, the directors and site management were committed to ensuring that the project was completed on time and on budget. In every interaction, we found S.J. Weir to be exceptionally professional, thorough and mindful of the demands of working within the school grounds. Furthermore, S.J. Weir sought to use local suppliers and local trade professionals, which was important to our broader school community.
As a result of our project with S.J. Weir, Clarendon has an aesthetically striking and entirely functional contemporary learning environment for all of our students to enjoy. The strong alignment of vision and values, shared expectations and a commitment to excellence, as well as clear and timely communication between S.J. Weir, our Architects and Clarendon are what ensured this project’s success.

Keith Caldwell - Director, Facilities Services
S. J. Weir have undertaken a range of construction and redevelopment projects for Federation University Australia over many years.
Most recently at our Mount Helen Campus the team transformed some dilapidated spaces within an existing building that was still in use into state of the art nursing and student learning areas.
Similar projects at our SMB Campus include: the adaptation of a former student amenities and gymnasium building into ceramics, sculpture and drawing labs; and the conversion of former teaching spaces into commercial office accommodation.
At all times, we have found the team from S.J. Weir to be courteous, professional and responsive to our needs by providing a can do attitude and practical value for money solutions to often complex building issues. Our professional experience with this company and its team has always been a positive one.
