construction under way on brisbanes first high rise school

Stage one of the Fortitude Valley development, which includes the performing arts centre, sports centre, and main vertical building, will be delivered in three separable portions by Hutchinsons Builders.

“Schools have always been a big part of what we do,” Hutchinson Builders chairman Scott Hutchinson said.

“My great-grandfather, Jack Hutchinson I, worked on the Manly State School in 1913 and since then we have built more than 500 education projects.”

Cox Architecture was awarded the project through a design competition by the Department of Education, while the architectural documentation will be handled by ThomsonAdsett.

Arcadia Landscape Architecture is also part of the design team for the Brisbane project, which when complete will cater for up to 1500 students.
