St Catherine's School - Research, Performing Arts and Aquatic Centre, Waverley
St Catherine’s School, Waverley engaged Northrop to create a world-class facility used to nurture young minds into the performing arts, swimming and academia.
The project required the design of a new building on an existing school site, due for completion in 2019.
Sustainability was a strong focus, with our client seeking to achieve a 4 Star Green Star equivalent facility. The biggest challenge was dealing with the existing site infrastructure and the relocation of services required before excavation. Our team had to devise an early works plan to meet the client’s needs.
Lighting design complemented the architectural design, which was aligned with St Catherine’s vision to be a ‘pillar of the community’. Several interesting features left our engineers inspired and motivated.
Most of the team was in-house, so we coordinated documentation efficiently and completed it on time. The close correspondence between our engineers and the architect, PD Mayoh, allowed for harmonisation across the project.
