St Pauls Lower Primary School Nursery

HMGoG re-aligned key stage entry at local schools. This demanded school facilities to accommodate school entry pupils at a lower age. This created a need to increase the capacity of school nurseries. GJBS were commissioned to refurbish part of the existing school to accommodate 4 large fully fitted nurseries that included an outdoor learning area to cater for 3-6 year olds.

Rugby Pitch

Europa Sports Complex

The contract was awarded to GJBS by HMGoG as a design and build project involving the demolition of existing buildings, site clearance, enabling works and construction of a new concrete and steel framed sporting facility at Europa point, designed to have minimal visual impact on the surrounding area in order to fit in with the surrounding buildings adjacent the University of Gibraltar.

Working closely with the Department of Culture and the Museum of Gibraltar to ensure the Heritage assets in the area were maintained and incorporated into the works including the preservation of a Unique WWII concrete bunker encased in a room within the building which will allow this to be accessed and viewed by the public for the future.

Due to its location on the southern tip of Gibraltar the environmental, sustainability and climate change issues played a key role in the design and building of the project. In consultation with ministers and the department for the environment, HMGoG invested heavily in renewable energy at the Europa sports complex covering the entire roof space at Europa with photovoltaic solar panels, capable of powering the facility when running at full capacity and in conjunction with Gibelec, returning electricity back into the grid when not being used to capacity.

The Stadium was partially completed in July 2019 & hosted the International Island Games 2019 and the Gibraltar Music Festival in September 2019. The new facility, although owned by HMGoG, will be the new home for the Gibraltar Rugby Football Union.

The Gibraltar Cricket Association will also call Europa its new home with new cricket oval indoor practice nets with pitch vision ball tracking and state of the art training aids already installed and in use. Outdoor practice nets and a new cricket pavilion, clubhouse, offices, groundsman storage areas, designated scoreboards and bar areas.

The Gibraltar Squash Association with six new squash courts, clubhouse facilities and bar, office and storage rooms and 80 seat tiered stand are also set up and using the new facilities at Europa.

New multifunction sports hall and event space with Changing Rooms and WC/ Shower facilities will accommodate Gibraltar Badminton Association, the Gibraltar Netball Association, Volleyball, Basketball and Futsal.

Volleyball Court

Island Beach Volleyball Facility

Historically beach volleyball has always been played socially in our local beaches. GJBS was commissioned to design and install a purposely built facility at the ex-Nuffield Pool complex to cater for two Olympic sized courts. The building of the court entailed the use of special containment system that can be removed and transported to alternative venues. The procurement of the sand was imposed by the international federation and was transported from Madrid.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC)

The PricewaterhouseCoopers’s office building also constructed by GJBS, located at 323 Main Street, consists of a 3-story office space for the use of its employees and clients. The building provides employees with a modern working environment with the use of hot desk, board rooms, kitchens, coffee stations, WC, lecture room and outdoor terraces. For their clients the building provides meeting booths and meeting rooms with a large reception. The office building caters for disabled access to all levels with 1 stair lift at the main entrance to access the reception level and a 6 man lift to access all floors.

The new office building was a large refurbishment of a typical old town house in the centre of Gibraltar. The refurbishment of the building also includes the addition of 1 extra floor to the existing building making it 3 story building. This additional floor was constructed of hot rolled steel and LGSF with the construction of 1 new staircase leading up to the new top floor of the building and the construction of a new lift shaft connecting all floors.  Externally the aesthetics of the building was kept in line with the original building as requested by Town Planning.

The new state of the art Rifle Shooting Range, with an open air, 50m, 20-lane target shooting range sat across two floors at the top of new 5 storey commercial building located at North Mole. The new complex itself housing new office units, storage units and car parking facilities adding new commercial space to the area.

Awarded to GJBS as a Design and Build contract which commenced in July 2018 and partially completed in July 2019 for the International Island Games.

The contract involved the clearance and removal of existing storage units and facilities to allow for the construction of a new steel framed structure on reinforced concrete raft foundations consisting of ground floor commercial units, first floor office units, 2nd floor car parking spaces, 3rd floor 50m outdoor rifle range, 4th floor 10m , 25m and air rifle shooting ranges with clubhouse facilities, kitchen and bar, electronic shooting equipment, changing rooms with showers and WC’s, secure gun storage and armoury with buffer walls which ensure security for both shooters and the public.

A Quote from the Club following the Island Games success –  “You wouldn’t find a range quite like this in the UK. From what we’ve heard from Facebook and from all the Islands who participated, this is a magnificent facility, and some have even said that this is the best shooting facility in all of Europe.

St Anne’s School

Following the successful completion and hand over of Notre Dame School GJBS were engaged by HMGoG to Design and Build a state of the art ST Anne’s Upper Primary School, which incorporated specialist teaching and sensory areas specifically for the LSF Classes. Also, within the requirements was a modern Sports Hall facility that can be utilised by both schools and the general public, this project was completed within 11 months of the first pile being driven.

 

St Anne’s School is a three-storey reinforced concrete structure which comprised of both traditionally reinforced concrete structural design and an area that required constructing using post tensioned slab, allowing larger internal open areas. The school is situated at podium level, over a new carpark with an excess of 300 spaces, the School has been designed to enhance the teaching experience of the core age groups, with enhanced sound proofing throughout to ensure the ambient sounds of Winston Churchill Avenue do not distract the pupils. The school also benefits from 100% wi-fi coverage to assist the teaching activities and to support HMGoG’s commitment to modern teaching techniques and equipment.

 

In addition to the provision of the new school which compliments its adjacent school, at podium level there is also a brand-new Adventure Playground and football / basketball pitch for the use of the residents of the Laguna Estate.

Ferry Goods Ramp

We constructed a Ferry goods ramp for the entry of consumable goods into Gibraltar.

The work involved breaking out an existing MOD culvert containing many services including a redundant fuel line, re-diverting/removing services, installation of 50-ton mooring bollards, a heavily reinforced concrete ramp and new offices for Customs with road barrier.

Extremely difficult works due to the location on the quay side.

D&H1

D&H Ceramics

The demolition and clearance of the old yard facility followed by construction of a new structure to form the new storage depot, showroom and offices for D&H Ceramics. Extensive piling works were carried out followed by a raft foundation slab and a reinforced concrete frame. A difficult part of the project was marrying the new with the existing building for vehicle access so a complicated structure was designed to bridge the gap and make the structure waterproof. Modern rain screen cladding was introduced to two of the building’s elevations which saw artificial stone panels fixed to a steel frame standing proud of the building so rainwater can run down behind the panels.

Girl Guides Hut

This recreational facility is located in the Upper Rock Area and used as a camp retreat for the Gibraltar Girl Guides. The building which consisted of a single floor masonry construction had not been used in a number of years and was in a derelict condition. GJBS was contracted by the Government of Gibraltar to construct another level in traditional slatted timber construction to assimilate a cabin with the character to blend into a typical woods area.

The new facility now comprises of activity areas and full kitchen facilities in the ground floor with sleeping accommodation in the newly built first floor. The building is also equipped with full ablution facilities including a lift and WC / Shower for disabled use. Externally, there are also protected recreational areas together with playing grounds.
