Caulfield Grammar School - Teaching and Learning building

We have been working with Caulfield Grammar School since 2018 on various upgrade works across their Wheelers Hill, Malvern and Caulfield campuses. Following our involvement with the Caulfield Campus master-planning activities in 2019, we were thrilled to be appointed in 2021 for their flagship Senior School Teaching and Learning building.

This exemplary five storey plus basement building aspires to be Australia’s first 6-star Green Star (D&AB v1.3) education building and is also the first registered Australian school targeting WELL Gold certification.

The project has involved complex staged enabling works and infrastructure diversions including the demolition of numerous buildings, line removals, easement abolishments, sewer and water diversions, substation upgrades and major switchboard modifications. Services-wise, the building will boast class-leading Indoor Environment and Air Quality, irrigated biophilia and smarts in operation with interconnected lighting and mechanical. Rainwater harvesting and reuse, lighting control, tight dead-bands on air-conditioning and smart metering have also been incorporated.

Caulfield Grammar School has exhibited a sector-leading commitment to sustainability and wellbeing outcomes for this Senior School building to improve learning and teaching outcomes for the School community.
