8i Architects were engaged by FKG Group to design and document a brand new $40 million school in Coomera for the Department of Education.  


The main scope of works comprised of a total of 17 new buildings including an Administration and Student Support Building, Multipurpose Hall, Canteen & Central Amenities, dedicated Prep, Junior and Senior learning areas and a Special Education Unit.


The project also included provision of multiple outdoor play areas, extensive landscaping, a student drop-off & bus zone area, visitor and staff car parking, covered entry and walkways and sports oval. The school also has a direct connection to the nearby natural habitat with the inclusion of a nature bridge that links it to a local Koala Conservation area.
