Overview

In 2015, NLE was appointed as the Educational Space Planner for a new P-12 college in Austral NSW. The project was staged to accommodated a growing cohort of students in a high growth area. It commenced using an existing house on the site to accommodate the admin areas and a new pre-fab building to support the first intake of K-2 students. The early phases were completed by Munns Sly Moore and DWP took over the project in 2019. NLE continued to work alongside the school principal for the duration of the project from master plan onwards. In 2021 NLE finalised its work on the final stage of the design with construction proposed to complete the facility throughout 2022 and 2023. NLE’s work on this project included educational space planning (master plan and facilities), professional learning and assistance with a new recruitment strategy to address the desired skill sets for working in the new space types.
