VIC New Schools 2 PPP
Tranche 1 – 2017; Tranche 2 – 2018
The Victorian New Schools Project delivers 15 new schools across some of Victoria’s fastest growing metropolitan and regional communities, with the schools set to open for the 2017 and 2018 school years.
In support of the State Government’s education agenda, the schools are designed as community hubs and will encourage community use and additional community facilities and programs through a partnership with the YMCA. The schools will also support inclusion of all learners, including students with a disability.
The State requirement was for the school buildings to provide good levels of thermal comfort for the students, teachers and members of the community using the buildings, and for the buildings to be controlled by passive means as far as possible. LCI helped to achieve this through passive cooling design plus the incorporation of an active cooling and heating system that maintained the space temperature at 21 to 26 degrees Celsius for optimal learning environment for both staff and students.
