Nearing completion: McKinnon Secondary College Gymnasium

Posted on Nov 29, 2021

A contemporary, light-filled gymnasium for the school and wider community to enjoy, our latest project for McKinnon Secondary College is nearing completion.


Positioned at the north end of campus with its own carpark, the new gymnasium is easily accessible to both the school and general public. The new facility offers competition-grade basketball, volleyball and netball timber courts, along with ample amenities, including change rooms, a kiosk, storage and office facilities.


The new gymnasium creates an important visual and physical link to the main campus, while providing a backdrop to the main outdoor sport and recreation area. Taking cues from classical architecture, the design features a gable roof form with generously pitched roof, gable ends and colonnade-inspired entry façade. The refined structural design showcases the elegant exposed structural steel work, further highlighting the incredible natural light.


One of our longest standing clients, the new gymnasium is the latest high-profile project for the school, following the completion of the Senior Centre and Library Hub. Currently under construction by Jointly, the project is due for completion early in the new year.


Under Construction: The pared-back form is complemented by a gentle material palette, including ply cladding and wood wool panels, which also provide exceptional acoustic performance.
