Woodridge State School Resource
Centre and Multi Purpose Hall
Buildplan were engaged by the Queensland Department of Education to undertake the design and construction of a new Resource Centre and separate Multi Purpose Hall at Woodridge State School as part of the Federal Government’s Building the Education Revolution Program.
Completed in December 2009, these two facilities represent both a significant upgrade to the school’s teaching and learning areas as well as much needed all weather auditorium and sports hall space.
The Resource Centre and associated Science and Technology area includes a range of alternative, flexible and collaborative learning spaces including a vast covered outdoor opening learning area which also acts as a function space.
The construction of the adjacent Multi Purpose Hall allows the school to conduct a range of indoor sports such as basketball, volleyball, netball and badminton. The Hall also contains dedicated toilet and change room facilities, kitchen facilities and audio visual services which allows the school to also utilise the hall as an assembly and auditorium space.
The completed projects includes simple sustainable design principles such as building orientation, internal designs to maximise cross flow ventilation, motion sensor lighting controls as well as rainwater capture for reuse through toilet, drinking facilities and surrounding landscaping.
