A work in progress.
A new primary school with a construction budget of $10m, located on a greenfield site in the rapidly-expanding growth corridor of Tarneit in Melbourne’s south-west. Designated a “fast-tracked” project, the school was designed, documented and tendered within several months, calling for tight and professional co-ordination of our internal team and consultant colleagues.
Key design priorities include highly-flexible collaborative learning areas, effective natural ventilation throughout all buildings and crucially, an emphasis on integrating the carefully-sited buildings with the surrounding landscape scheme.
Under construction during 2017, the school will open in January 2018. Initially accommodating 475 students, it will be able to meet further enrolment demands via the introduction of relocatable buildings (locations of which have been incorporated into the school’s masterplan).
