The first stage of MLC’s masterplan for the Kew campus is the construction of a new Years 7-8 Learning Centre which will be built where the Nicholas Building once stood.
This development, due for completion during 2019, will include 24 configurable learning spaces for Years 7 and 8 home groups, as well as indoor and outdoor learning and recreational spaces, plus the redevelopment of the Principal’s Terrace garden space for the whole College, which opened at the beginning of 2019.
This is one of the most significant projects for the College in recent years and unlocks the potential for a series of interconnected facilities, cementing MLC’s position as an innovator in education.
The Years 7-8 Learning Centre has been in the planning for several years and the staff and student input into the new building’s interiors, fixtures and finishes has been invaluable in ensuring that will be at the forefront of learning spaces.
These images provide an indication of the look and feel of this incredible new learning spaces and while they are not the final designs they do provide a glimpse of what this future space will look like.
We are also pleased to advise that, following a rigorous tender process, McCorkell Constructions were appointed as the builder for the Years 7-8 Learning Centre. McCorkell Constructions have 90 years’ experience in commercial projects, including an extensive history working with schools and universities, many in live operating environments.
McCorkell have recently completed the construction of MLC’s new substation, which they delivered very efficiently and with great consideration to the requirements of the College.
We are also working with McCorkell to create student engagement through structured activities associated with the new development, a great opportunity to learn in a very different context!
