Construction works progressing at Norwood Secondary College
Local Member of Parliament Will Fowles visited our Norwood Secondary College site last Wednesday. Norwood Secondary College is located in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, set amongst the established community of Ringwood North.
“It was great to chat with Principal Andrew Sloane and check out the progress on the $7.38 million upgrade. Check out that view!” Will Fowles MP
Works on the secondary school include the partial demolition of existing school buildings and the construction of a new multi-level learning facility including eight new classrooms with operable/configurable walls, arts, and technology rooms, a wellbeing centre, staff work areas, meeting rooms, and consulting rooms.
Construction works are well underway. Installation of the roof has just been completed; face brickwork is almost complete with external cladding to start soon. The internal partition walls are under construction, and services trades are roughing in including cabling, pipework, and ductwork.
The project has been designed to provide flexible modern multipurpose spaces within the new building to support the team teaching pedagogy of the school, and a desire to provide variation between different learning environments to enhance the learning experience.
The facades are clad in a combination of white bricks and coloured yellow metal cladding with windows either expressed or recessed depending on the elevation to respond to the varying sun angles.
Building Engineering is thrilled to continue its partnership with the Victorian School Building Authority to deliver this exciting new upgrade for the Norwood Secondary College community. The school is proud of its connections to the local community with many families moving into the area for the school’s reputation.
Building Engineering is working closely with himmelzimmer to deliver this high-quality learning facility that will enable the school to build upon its strengths.
Works are on track to be delivered in mid-2023.
