he $2.1 million upgrade involved a partial demolition and remediation of existing Block B. The new building now hosts six MLE teaching areas (circa 700m2) catering for an increase in student growth.
To successfully achieve a comfortable environment we carefully co-ordinated the structure, ductwork and pipework, and penetrations using detailed Revit modeling throughout. We achieved excellent thermal performance by high levels of insulation and glazing treatment.
