This phase of development at the school includes the construction of a new Performing Arts & Music Centre and marks Ridgemill’s third project at the Mackay Northern Beaches SHS.

The new centre provides:

  • 2 x dance studios
  • 2 x drama classrooms
  • A music GLA and ensemble rehearsal room
  • Dressing room
  • Costume and Prop rooms
  • Box office kiosk
  • Associated amenities

The building also features a mezzanine level that provides an audio-visual space and lighting gallery, staff workroom and kitchenette.

The project included minor refurbishment to two existing blocks to convert them from dance and drama rooms into general GLAs.

The project provided some impressive stats:

  • 15,000m of data cable
  • 650m of mains cable
  • 1,000 of sub-mains
  • 530 lights
  • 270 GPOs
  • 43,000 concrete blocks
  • 1,650m3 of concrete poured.

Well done to everyone involved!
