The building is sited on the northern frontage to the college addressing Abernethy Road and will provide much needed facilities for senior students including general and business studies learning areas, IT laboratories, lecture theatre, student services, and staff collegiate areas in the third and final stage of the Byford Secondary College.
A key feature of the two storey facility is the “internal street” with learning areas accessed either side of the east-west axis. This provides optimal orientation for all rooms and allows the creation of a generous spine with natural day lighting via high level clerestory glazing. Incidental Learning Areas are incorporated into this space to allow flexible learning in areas other than the classrooms.
The project is currently under construction and due for occupation in October 2017.
