We won this commission despite being the only respondent not to submit the requested design with our tender. Instead we submitted a comprehensive methodology that explained how we would go about designing an educational facility that would comprehensively meet all of council’s requirements and provide the most economic solution. Our implemented methodology resulted in great public acceptance and staff ownership of the final building. As a result Stea was invited to present a paper at QLD State Library conference.
Our design incorporated low maintenance materials and ESD initiatives which significantly reduced energy consumption. The building was recognised by the Australian Institute of Architects receiving a Regional Commendation and the Central QLD Building of the Year award.
