20 Apr 2021 OCEANIA BUILDINGS

Western Australia Premier Mark McGowan and Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery visited Bob Hawke College in the city of Subiaco, Western Australia, as second stage construction gets underway.

Allocated $57.6m, stage two facilities will give a big boost to the college, while providing around 1,650 jobs during construction.

Stage two construction will provide facilities such as a performing arts centre, dance and visual arts studios, music rooms and two state-of-the-art media studios for students.

General classrooms will also be added, creating space for 2,000 students and doubling the college’s current capacity.

Located on the northern end of the Bob Hawke College in Subiaco, the construction will also include landscaped areas and a roof terrace for students to chill out.

With college facilities opened in the beginning of 2020, the second stage will add important infrastructure.

Premier Mark McGowan said: “It wasn’t that long ago that I opened the first stage of the impressive Bob Hawke College, which has a wonderful school community and spirit, and where students are enjoying a quality education. I am pleased the second phase of works is now underway and I can’t wait to see the state-of-the-art facilities take shape as construction progresses over the coming months. The build is set to support about 1,650 jobs during construction, before it opens for students for the 2023 school year.”

The project’s design consultant is Hassell Studio, while construction is managed by Western Australian builder PACT Construction.

Unveiling of the facilities is expected for the 2023 school year.

Education and Training Minister Sue Ellery said: “Students at Bob Hawke College will soon have access to architecturally-designed arts facilities including a performing arts centre, dance and visual arts studios, and music and media rooms. The school has already become a landmark in the Subiaco community and it’s fantastic to see the second stage of the innovative school get underway.”
