In 2015 CBG were fortunate enough to complete two amazing educational buildings for Flinders Christian Community College (FCCC). One of those buildings was D Block at Tyabb which is their new state of the art VCE Centre.
The main entrance to the building is housed under a spectacular clear-span atrium measuring 15m x 24.5m, with 3D feature carpet underneath that stops you in your tracks. The entry space under the atrium forms the main social area for the students with lounges, tables and chairs, as well as a large kitchen area.
The entire building is disabled compliant. There are large male and female student bathrooms as well as male and female staff bathrooms. There are four large scale classroom spaces with dividing concertina partition walls, which once the partitions are activated they break down into 12 standard size classrooms. The largest of these open classroom spaces is an impressive 27.8m x 9.8m. Additionally there are smaller interview rooms, tutorial rooms and study rooms to cater for all the varying needs of students.
Outside of student quarters but under the same roof are approximately 20 staff/admin rooms including a reception, photocopy/print room, and a sick bay. Capping off the building is a long hallway lined with student lockers.
Overall, this massive project was a massive success, completed on time allowing FCCC to get the furniture fit our complete before the return of students from the Christmas break.
We found Cellstruct well versed and compliant with the particular requirements associated with working within an operating school environment. Their performance, professionalism & efficiency was impressive and we will definitely consider them for future projects – Peter Cutting, Manager Special Projects
