Laidley State High School’s new multi-storey GLA building with extension of science block and manual arts building.
The project included a commercial teaching kitchen, dance area, film and TV studio, music rooms and general GLA’s.
This regional project was able to be successfully managed by 8i Architects’ Brisbane office.
Jeremy Haldane was the Principal Project Architect. 8i Architects was employed as the Principal Consultant on the project. As the Principal Consultant, 8i Architects had to undertake the management and co-ordination of the design team which included secondary consultants such as Mechanical, Electrical, Security and Communications Engineer, Hydraulics, Structural, Civil, Landscape Architect, DDA Consultant and Building Certifier.
8i Architects worked with and under the direction of the Project Manager, who was our point of contact for advising and reporting to the Department of Education. The Project Manager was responsible for delivering the program and budget for the project. We assisted the Project Manager to ensure that the buildings were delivered on time and within budget whilst maintaining building quality. The time and budget constraints were achieved by design buildings that were fit for purpose, used readily available local trades and materials and adding value in the design.
The Principal Consultancy Team delivered concept design, sketch design, design development, construction documentation, tender and contract administration for the project.
