The architecturally designed building was part of a large project for the Caulfield Grammar Wheelers Hill campus, designed by McIldowie Architect and delivered by Prebuilt over an impressive nine month period.
The new building comprises of four Learning Areas, three classrooms, staff offices and recreation areas, reception and refurbishment of the multipurpose hall. Stepping outside the building, significant improvements were undertaken including substantial retaining wall, sandpits and playgrounds and hard and soft landscaping to nestle the building into its surrounds.
The semi-sub-terranean design saw the building nestled down into the site to facilitate a first floor entry sequence. This required detailed excavation and retaining and coordinated delivery response.
Complexities of the build included upgrading the fire system in the school compound as part of the overall delivery from Prebuilt.
Installation of the building took place on a weekend to minimise disruption to the school program, with the onsite works completed over the following three months.
