Community: Education & Public Buildings

Community projects encompass a very broad range of building types and Clients. The common denominator is the social benefit not driven by commercial considerations.

Mark Lawler Architects have had experience in a wide range of community projects ranging from schools, TAFE buildings, childcare centres and various religious facilities. These projects include new buildings through to extensive renovations to existing buildings. At Mark Lawler Architects, we offer modern construction solutions to ensure your project goes exactly the way you planned.

Our Experience in Education Architecture

For example, with high school projects we have been involved in the construction of:

  • Science laboratories
  • Hospitality kitchens
  • Woodwork and metalwork rooms
  • Spaces for music and performance
  • Art studios
  • Offices for administration staff
  • New buildings
  • Renovations of existing buildings
  • Libraries
  • Staff facilities
  • Open shelters
  • Assembly halls
  • Specialist teaching spaces
  • Master planning
  • Playing fields

Education and Public Buildings Projects

Whether dealing with new schools on green sites or with existing schools, the work on any individual building always involves greater considerations of the master plan for future growth, provision for recreational areas as well as the necessary administration functions.

Quite often it is the development of an intelligent site plan which can determine the success or failure of the education facility more than the design of any one particular building.

We have undertaken projects at both the University of Newcastle and the local TAFE campuses. Our education projects have all been completed under the strict funding arrangements which are often dictated by State and Federal Government grants.

Mark Lawler Architects have the expertise and the experience to offer creative design solutions for a wide range of education projects. Contact us to discuss your brief.
