St Mary’s Primary School

Method is proud to have a hand in the redevelopment and upgrade of St Mary’s Primary School in Hampton back in 2010, which was at the time shortlisted for an Architeam award. Its redevelopment included a new multipurpose hall, staffroom, kitchen, library, storage rooms, toilets, sickbay, classrooms, and offices.

Method were involved in the design development of this project, including structural design, materials selection, and delivery; which as always, was on-time and within budget. Development was undertaken during the school year with minimum disruption towards the school’s program and had minimal impact on the existing buildings.

The multipurpose hall was constructed using precast concrete panels with Daniel Robinson brick snaps. The first-floor structure included a 14m long prestressed hollow core concrete panels to allow for clear spans to the multipurpose hall.

Acoustic panelling was installed to control breakout noise from the students playing sports, music or having concerts next door. Structural steel, timber, and translucent cladding made up the first floor and roof structure.
