Hutchinson Builders have been awarded the contract to build a project initiating the birth of a ‘future focused’ learning environment. Lead Architect, ThomasAdsett has designed a cutting-edge vertically shaped education facility, presently the first inner-city Brisbane school built in more than 50 years. The “Inner City North State Secondary College” construction will be inclusive of innovative learning spaces such as Robotics studios and Technology labs. The experienced QLD Rondo technical representative was engaged in the project, required to consider suffice products for high wind pressures designed for soffits and wall framing.
Rondo worked closely with Wadsworth Contracting providing KEY-LOCK® Concealed Ceiling Systems, Panther® Access Panels, plastering beads as well as external 92mm framing, soffit framing, internal 76 & 64mm wall framing. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk was joined by the Minister for Education and Member for McConnel Grace to discuss the release of the proposed catchment area. The State Government has funded $800 million towards the project as part of the government’s Building Future Schools Fund. Approximately, 300 full-time jobs will be provided in the construction sector, as an expected 3,000 additional students are expected to move into the area over the next five years.
