VSBA - Department of Education & Training
Glenallen School, Glen Waverley
$ 2.0 million
In 2016 FMSA Architecture was engaged by the Department of Education and Training (DET) to provide architectural services to modernise the Glenallen School. The Glenallen School provides specialised education services for children with intellectual and/or physical disabilities.
The scope of the project included upgrades to 6 existing toilet and change areas including a pool change area. The new facilities were designed in accordance with “Changing Places” guidelines to accommodate the rigorous needs of the students, carers and teachers.
The sensitively designed toilet areas feature electric hoists, automated doors and colour themed areas to define gender specific activity zones. Designed in line with DET regulations and requirements, the new facilities support the needs of the staff and students.
FMSA Architecture has subsequently been engaged to under Stage 2 works including redevelopment of the entry ramp and foyer. Stage 2 is set to commence construction in July 2019.
