Peddle Thorp Far North were commissioned as Principal Consultants by the Department of Education, Training and Employment (DETE) for the expansion of Trinity Bay State High School.

The new building would be located at the formal entry to the School on Hoare Street, previously a grassed and treed area. This was the only site within the school grounds that could house a significant new building platform. A linear model was selected and further developed.

This resulted in a 2 story building facing toward the mountains and linking in with the schools Theatre forecourt with a large Covered Link. Staff Facilities and the Flexible Learning Areas were accommodated on the ground floor, GLAs on the upper Level, with Project Development Areas sharing circulation space and spilling out onto the external surrounds.
