• Knox Grammar School Music Centre | ATCO

    To give students a dedicated space to develop their musical talents and interests, Knox Grammar School planned a new performance arts centre. In November 2016, we were contracted to design, manufacture and install a 655 sq. m. building.

    Leading independent K-12 Uniting Church, day and boarding school in Australia, Knox Grammar School is renowned for the breadth of its curriculum, quality of education, and state of the art facilities. In addition to academics, the school is heavily invested in its sports and arts programs, aimed at fostering creativity and participation.

    To give students a dedicated space to develop their musical talents and interests, Knox Grammar School planned a new performance arts centre. In November 2016, we were contracted to design, manufacture and install a 655 sq. m. building. Site work began on the first day of school holidays in December to minimize disruption to students and neighbouring properties. The 18 modular units were built at our manufacturing plant within seven weeks, and by January 2017, the music centre was open and fully operational.

    This performance arts centre features specialized acoustic considerations, and includes two music classrooms, two band rehearsal areas, six individual tutoring rooms, and a staff room. The paneled exterior of the permanent building complements the look and feel of the school’s surroundings, with covered walkways bringing the two together.
