New 68,000 SQ FT, LEED certified, P-12 school built to reflect the steep grades and limited space of the site with a terraced design over three-storeys.
The school encompasses a gym with an adjacent drama room that doubles as a stage. Teaching and educational spaces are set over the three levels with ‘maker spaces’ located throughout providing varied innovative areas for learning.
The building is a steel frame construction with concrete slabs on metal decks with an external envelope featuring aluminum windows and curtain walling together with cladding panels of both composite wood and a European fibre cement. The building is heavily serviced to meet the demands of a modern school including the provision of a biomass boiler, with a variety of quality finishes and fixtures throughout.
