Melbourne Grammar – Cutting-Edge New Science & Tech Hub

This beautiful, sculptural building stands adjacent to the main oval at the schools’ South Yarra campus. The construction of the new five level Science and Technology Hub replaces an existing science building.

Sympathetic to the site’s heritage buildings, the new structure draws on the extensive presence of Bluestone throughout the campus. The curved building follows the boundary of the main oval, allowing the viewer an imposing yet calming view of the structure.

Entry to the building is via a raised, gently ramped pathway, leading to a covered entry.

Kane was the overseeing builder on this project and Image Paving won the stone installation contact.

After the screeds were established, and membrane installed, high density polystyrene insulation board was installed to create an inverted roof system. A combination of Australian Bluestone and Bluestone & Coloured Concrete pavers were selected to all balconies and pedestrian walkways and installed on Versipave paver supports.

The project was completed in December 2017.

As you can see the overall project was a great success.
