Kelvin Grove State College – Year 7

Kelvin Grove State College received a new general learning classroom block as part of the Year 7 Flying Start Program, through the Department of Education and Training.

With space restrictions on the school grounds, there were limited optioned for constructing a building of this size. A sloping bank overlooking the sports courts and oval was selected, posing specific site constraints, such as accessability, service displacement and the temporary relocation of student safe passage routes.
The new building contains 18 general learning classrooms, 2 flexible learning areas, 2 collaborate areas, 2 project development areas, a new special education wing, staff rooms, an open undercroft for future classrooms and a suspended bridge connecting the new building to the rest of the school.

The new building that was delivered using a design and construction procurement method to ensure the project was completed before the start of school 2015.

The building was designed using a pre-cast and prefinished concrete construction with traditional steel roof and partially fire rated external walls. This allowed faster on site construction.

A large number of trees were removed to allow space for the new building. The project was conducted in a live school environment where safety of students was paramount.

The project was delivered on time and on budget.
