Northern School for Autism

An initiative by the Department of Education, Early Childhood Development saw 2Construct awarded the contract to build a new $14m school in the northern suburbs for students affected by autism.

The redevelopment, at the old Burbank Primary school comprised the complete demolition of the existing school. The large site of approx. 20,500m2 comprises single level building, soft landscape areas, artificial grass areas along with rubber paving areas and an allowance for a future sensory garden and associated re-locatable buildings.

The single level building contains wings for each of the junior, middle, intermediate and senior schools together with an administration and multi purpose room, library and arts area.

The projects was completed late 2012 and has since been nominated for the Royal Victorian Institute of Architects Sustainability award.
