Electrical Installation: Cairns State High School Deck Lighting

Proud to have played a part in dressing up Cairns State High School for their centenary celebrations in September 2017. Samark Electrical are the preferred electrical contractors for a number of high schools and educational facilities around Cairns and Tropical North Queensland.

For this particular high school electrical installation, we worked on two very separate but iconic electrical jobs for the school. The first project was to install deck lighting, at the newly constructed MacKenzie Walk, at the school. This was necessary to help illuminate the gala function held to celebrate the centenary.

A secondary element of our electrical works was to take down the old lanterns, that have proudly adorned the walls either side of the front entry gate, on the corner of Sheridan and Upward Streets, and transform them into working electric lights. Although this was a relatively simple electrical job for the school, it was a bit of a coming of age really. It is believed the lanterns haven’t been in working order for at least 40 years, but thanks to Samark Electrical, they are shining bright again now.

Cairns State High School is an institution in Cairns. Proudly occupying its current location for over 100 years, the school started as an annex of Cairns Central State School. Today it has a capacity for 1,500 enrolled students, from grades 7 through to 12.

To celebrate the centenary in 2017, Cairns State High School hosted two days of events, including an evening gala which was illuminated by hundreds of lights. To make this event functional and safe, Samark Electrical were contracted to install a new switchboard and power, to enable the various lighting and event functions.

In total, this project was scheduled for completion over eight (8) weeks, a timeline we achieved. The full description of works included the installation of new deck lights, new switchboard and power for functions, as well as the modernisation of the old lanterns.

Samark Electrical provided the people, products and expertise to complete the electrical installations required by Cairns State High School, in a timely and efficient manner. Work was completed on budget.
