Upgrades to amenities

CMBM completed a comprehensive upgrade to the amenities at Marsden State High School, including plumbing and electrical works, joinery upgrades, painting, and the installation of new epoxy flooring.

CMBM carried out plasterworks to restore damaged walls and surfaces, eliminating eyesores and creating a more visually appealing environment that reflects the care demonstrated by the school to its students and staff.

  • New sink installation
  • Ceiling sheet replacement
  • Door installation in laundry space
  • Gutter cleaning
