Excellence in Housing and Construction Awards – Master Builders Tasmania Excellence Awards 201113-Aug-2011
Ridgley Primary School – Winner
This project involved the complete internal redevelopment of a rural school with major emphasis on a new hall, canteen and music room. The construction of the new hall involved timber portals with a soaring rolled section at the roof and wall junctions that required fabrication on site. Inclement weather including snow and high winds required considerable expertise and innovation on site to control temperatures during gluing and erection of portals.

Forth Primary School Performing Arts Centre – Highly Commended
The new building’s architecture ingeniously links the style of the existing school environment, echoing the use of red brick and bull-nosed weatherboards. The contemporary design, roof pitch and use of exterior aluminium composite panel together with the sheet colour and specific placement of black express joints, combine to provide an aesthetically pleasing optical view – creating a perfect blend between old and new.
The architect cleverly considered the environment in which the new structure would be placed and the relationship formed with school representatives enabled a sensitive approach to the design and materials used.
