Richlands East State School – Early Learning Centre

The school-aged population in Richlands has experienced significant growth in recent years. To meet this increase in in-catchment enrolment, an additional multi-storey learning centre was required at Richlands East State School.
Richlands East State School Early Learning Centre

To meet expected long-term growth, the Richlands East State School Early Learning Centre was designed to provide a total of eight teaching areas.  Six of these areas have been fitted out in the short term to meet current demand, with two additional spaces to be future-proofed for fitout when required.

Engaged under the Giarola Architects team, we designed the Electrical, Mechanical and Vertical Transport services for this new facility.  This included:

  • Negotiating difficult electrical demand limits on an already constrained supply, and coordinating a new feed from the existing main switchboard.
  • Completion of a Section J DTS assessment report by our mechanical team, based on natural ventilation throughout.

Working together all parties involved successfully and completed the project to deliver a safe, hygienic, and energy efficient facility designed for future growth.
