South Australian based architects have won the tender to design the new $100 million secondary school in Whyalla, that will accommodate 1500 students in Years 7 to 12.
Cox Architecture, in collaboration with Thomson Rossi, will design a world-class school with dynamic and adaptable learning environments for students and staff.
The new state of the art school will be designed with an entrepreneurial hub and contemporary STEM facilities, giving local students the opportunity to learn skills in innovation, advanced technology and to study in areas that have strong links to the local industry.
The new school will combine the three existing government school campuses in the region – Edward John Eyre, Stuart and Whyalla high schools.
The successful architects have been involved in various key South Australian projects, including Adelaide Botanic High School and the Brighton Secondary School redevelopment.
Both firms have also worked on several STEM facilities across the state.
