EIW Architects has been appointed to design a $15m expansion at Mount Lawley Senior High School in Perth, Australia.

The project involves construction of a new two-storey block to provide 20 general learning classrooms.

The new school block will also feature staff studies, makerspace, a state-of-the-art digital arts studio, along with associated amenities.

Western Australia Education and Training minister Sue Ellery said: “I’m pleased to announce that we now have architects on board to design a two-storey classroom block at Mount Lawley Senior High School.

“The 20 new classrooms and a modern digital arts studio will provide students with brand new learning areas that are equipped with the latest technologies.”

Planning for the new school block is currently underway and the project is anticipated to be completed in the first half of 2024.

Mount Lawley Legislative Assembly member Simon Millman: “Mount Lawley Senior High School is a wonderful school that achieves great results. This upgrade will help it continue its success as enrolments grow.

“This was one of my key election commitments and I am thrilled to see it moving ahead. The future is very bright for Mount Lawley Senior High School.”

The Government of Western Australia has also announced the commencement of construction on a new $3m facility for Albany State Emergency Service (SES).

The new facility will also serve as a Level 3 Incident Control Centre to manage large-scale emergencies in the region.

It will include training areas, a mobile communication centre, response and administration buildings, a garage to house appliances, and a command control point for major incidents including bushfires.
