Project Overview

A new administration building at John Pirie Secondary School was constructed to replace the existing administration facility.

The layout for the new building was based on the floor layout of Seaford 9-12 School’s administration building as per the clients brief.

The elevations of the new building are inspired by the chimney and curved parapet forms and trimming details of the existing original 1900s building.

The building construction materials were selected to reflect elements of the original existing building, to ensure the new building was sympathetic to the school site as a whole.
