ClarkeHopkinsClarke are excited to announce that Mernda Central P-12 College received the award for Best New Construction / Entire New Educational Facility at the 2018 Learning Environments Australasia Awards. Our team was honoured to receive this important recognition and to share this accolade with the School, the Victorian Schools Building Authority and the Learning Communities Victoria Consortium, with whom we worked in close collaboration to deliver this exemplar project.
Conceived as a community education hub, the design of Mernda Central P-12 College provides agile environments that allow students to flourish through learning in a way that best suits their needs. The judges citation applauded ClarkeHopkinsClarke for shaping a school enviornment that ’embodies the learning intent of the program and the powerful role of education in a fast-growing community.’ Furthermore, ‘ClarkeHopkinsClarke have created an outstanding school. The vivid design, the connection between school and community, the successful navigation of the myriad stakeholder voices, and the success of keeping the education narrative at the heart of the project has resulted in an excellent winner of this category’.
