Reitsma completed the design and construction of a four-storey education precinct for Sydney Catholic Schools. The majority of the structure is concrete framed using a post tension system. The project involves various forms of cladding and masonry including glazed bricks, curtain glass walls, mod-wood cladding, aluminium composite cladding.
The project includes a large 1500m2 rooftop courtyard play area with an impressive labyrinth which was created using ceramic tiles. The waterproofing systems for the roof and external walls required special attention to detail, as they sit two storeys underground in some areas. The project also features a large commercial kitchen, basketball court and fitness room, six new general learning areas, and a large stage for assemblies and performances.
