Building Engineering was awarded this project in July 2017 by the Department of Education and Training through the Victorian School Board Authority Capital Works Program. The project included construction of a new, purpose built single storey STEM learning centre, designed to focus on the development of ICT and technical skills for future employment needs.
The new building is designed in a horseshoe shape, with connections to several learning subject ‘pods’ including graphics, art, home economics, science and technology zones, with additional administration, reception, staff room and offices, materials storage and toilet facilities.
The project scope also required the construction of outdoor hard and soft landscaping, car park facilities and
associated civil works. Major materials used to complete the project included concrete slab on ground, structural steel, core filled masonry, detailed brickwork, timber, textured FC sheeting and extensive Colorbond cladding.
Building Engineering completed this project in close collaboration with Haskell Architects and Accuraco Project Management.
