Immanuel Lutheran College will have a new $2.5 million music and performing arts centre by the end of the 2014 school year. It’s the biggest construction project in 10 years and will add another 900 square metres of teaching and performance space to the already established campus.
Features of the purpose-built facility will include:
- Specialist music practise rooms
- A recording studio
- A 200 square metre auditorium and stage
“Since 2009, nearly $9 million has been invested in infrastructure including new Prep and Early Learning Centres, multipurpose courts, a sporting pavilion as well as a refurbished sports stadium, science, visual art and home economics facilities,” said Principal David Bliss.
“For all major projects we’ve used local contractors – builders, engineers, architects and a multitude of different trades. For this project, Core Architecture had the vision to design a visually spectacular but practical centre specific to our needs. This vision will be realised by building company Midsons Constructions Pty Ltd,” said Mr Bliss.
“The new $2.5 million music and performing arts centre has been designed and will be built to the highest specifications. It’s a teaching and learning facility that will be used on a daily basis and will allow students to hone their stagecraft to become proficient performers as well as behind the scenes operators of sound and lighting,” he said
“The project has a six month timeframe and Midsons will be onsite this week erecting temporary fencing with a view to commencing construction next week. Upon completion, Immanuel will have invested more than $11.3 million in major capital and minor new works which ultimately, is for the benefit of our students and families,” said Mr Bliss.
