Melbourne’s first integrated learning centre, the Carlton Learning and Community Hub provides educational opportunities across early and primary years.

The project comprised redevelopment of Carlton Primary School with 21st century flexible learning spaces, and a new 98 place Early Years Centre (ELC) and Family Services Centre located within the School campus, bringing education and care, maternal and child health and parenting services under one roof for the first time.

Building Engineering’s scope included major demolition and refurbishment works to the existing three level structure and construction of a new Covered Outdoor Learning Area (COLA).

The ground floor ELC and Maternal Health Centre includes a music room, art room, canteen, kitchen, internal and external play spaces, entry/reception, counselling rooms and multipurpose/shared areas. The levels above accommodate the main primary school functions, including administration, general learning areas, student library and media hub.
