The completion of a new indoor pool facility, refurbished hall and sports field at Brighton Grammar Junior School, sees Vaughan Constructions continue to expand our education portfolio.
Located in the heart of the junior school, our team delivered a three-level 1600m² hall, a 500m² indoor pool facility and a 630m² external area sports field.
The new pool structure turns the existing heated swimming pool into an indoor pool that will allow for year-round swimming programs in a weather protected environment.
As well as refurbishing the existing pool, works also included new bathrooms, changerooms, offices and a reception area.
The hall portion of the project included the demolition of the roof and high portions of the reinforced brick walls and construction of two additional levels of post-tensioned slabs.
The new construction and refurbishment provides the school with a new hall, canteen and storage areas. The upper levels include a large adventure space, offices, audio and classrooms with high spec finishes throughout.
Encouraging exploration and social interaction, the new adventure playground provides the boys with a sensory learning environment.
The external area includes a new artificial grass sports field and play space with feature coloured rubber play surfaces, new timber tiered seating, garden beds and sand pits.
Headmaster, Ross Featherston, said the school was absolutely delighted with the works.
“Our new and refurbished facilities will significantly enhance both the students’ and staff enjoyment of the school environment as well as our overall operational efficiency in delivering enjoyable, stimulating and healthy educational experiences.”
“Thank you very much to Vaughan Constructions for their professional approach, including excellent communication throughout the process, and especially for the quality and aesthetically pleasing finished product,” Mr Featherston said.
