Name: Mountain Creek State High School New Multi-Storey GLA Building

Date: June - 2019

Client: Department of Education, Qld Government.

Builder: FK Gardner & Sons

Category: Educational, Government



8i Architects were engaged to design and document a new $16.4 million multi-storey Learning Centre at Mountain Creek State High School. The centre  accommodates senior students and includes 16 new general learning areas, two flexible learning areas, three STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) learning spaces, three science labs, two robotics labs, two collaborative spaces, a staff space and amenities.

With over 10 years of designing and documenting educational facilities, 8i Architects was engaged by the FK Gardner & Sons to design and document a new three storey GLA building at Mountain Creek State High School on the Sunshine Coast.  This project was able to be successfully managed by 8i Architects' Brisbane office. 

Hieu Nguyen and Jeremy Haldane were the project architects.

The siting of the building was changed by 8i Architects to ensure the school's operation of 2,100 students was not disrupted by the construction of the new building. 


The project was completed on time and within budget.

8i Architects

8i Architects is a Brisbane based architectural design practice specialising in innovative, functional and sustainable design solutions. Our focus is on design excellence, providing quality spaces that are unique to the site and the client’s needs.


I have worked with Charmaine, Hieu and the team at 8i Architects for the past 6 years. I can honestly say that if you want no nonsense, non-ego based, well thought through and sensible architecture then let 8i manage your project for you. 


In my opinion 8i are big enough to handle projects up to the value of around $100m but small enough to provide the level of service that you won't get from the larger architectural firms who will give your project to a junior architect to manage.
