Lake Cathie Primary School

Port Macquarie, NSW

EJE provided full architectural design development, detailed documentation and construction phase services in assistance to AW Edwards the project builder. The school is a new 14 Core Primary School on a greenfields site located within an anticipated high growth coastal area between Lake Cathie and Bonny Hills on the NSW mid north coast.

The new $7.8million School was fast-tracked to a 12 month contract from design to completion. The design utilises low maintenance and prefinished sustainable materials well suited to the corrosive coastal environment and incorporates passive design and ecological principles with energy efficiency, natural ventilation and water recycling within an innovative educational facility.
