Description: Gran Associates designed this four classroom extension to an existing special school in Wollongong. Special attention was given to providing a safe and nurturing environment for the high needs special students. Colours and materials were carefully selected to ensure a soothing environment. The materials needed to be both tactile and robust to suit the students’ continual sensory investigation. The design includes clerestories and light wells to provide light filled spaces. The different rooms were planned to provide for simple and direct supervision.
Gran Associates was engaged to design and document the project and to provide full construction phase services.
Peter Reed from Gran Associates designed and project managed an excellent facility for students with disabilities and the school is very impressed with the new building. I am always impressed with Peter’s attention to detail and willingness to follow up on issues, big or small.
