Greenway created the Australian Technical College, Adelaide South, from the shell of the former Christies Beach High School. The derelict building was turned from a neighbourhood eyesore covered in graffiti and broken glass, into a modern, state of the art teaching facility for trade skills in the southern suburbs of Adelaide.
The buildings structure, internal floor slabs and external cladding and roofing were all that were retained as the 4,000m2 of internal space was refurbished including the addition of energy efficient air conditioning and data and cabling solutions. Over 93% of the removed materials were recycled as part of the demolition process.
Innovative planning solutions were required to fit specific facility requirements within an existing building shell that had limited natural light and low floor to floor heights. The building was converted to a mix of general and specialized learning areas, resource and IT rich environments and a number of specialist workshops for construction, CNC, electro-technology and fabrication trades.
The project shows Greenway's ability to produce quality outcomes under extremely tight timeframe and budget. The project was designed, documented, constructed and handed over in just 10 months and was delivered both on time and on budget, fulfilling the expectations of the client.
