The rollout of BER projects from 2009 to 2011 provided Our Lady Help of Christian’s school the opportunity to rationalise a sprawling site layout a result of low budget ad-hoc development over many years.

Construction of a new Multi-Purpose facility provided the opportunity to convert the redundant covered area in to a new purpose built Library Facility. The reuse and modification of portal frames provided clear spans to internal spaces with, generous heights and clerestory glazing providing an abundance of natural light.
