We built a new performing arts building for the school. It was completed in November 2009 and has approximately 250m² gross internal floor area.
The contract included the demolition of existing practice rooms and diversion of underground services. The new two storey building was constructed with mass concrete foundations, load bearing brick and block walls, and pre-cast concrete beam and block and plank floors.
The roof construction is a combination of steel portal framing and timber. It is finished with Sarnafil flat and pitched roof coverings.
Internal fit out provides a mixture of practice rooms and WCs on the ground floor. An open hall area at first floor provides dance and music recital facilities with bleachers stackable seating.
Specialist acoustic treatments were installed, including decorative Douglas fir panelling as a theme throughout.
