It was smooth ‘sailing’ and all smiles as Griffin State School in Queensland unveiled its brand-new buildings, sporting courts and play spaces which feature a pirate ship!
Located in the coastal suburb of Griffin, north of Brisbane’s CBD, the school has grown immensely since it was established in 2016. The recently completed almost $20 million expansion was much needed to accommodate continuing high demand in the school’s catchment area.
The new facilities were officially opened on 26 August 2020 by Education Minister, Grace Grace MP, and Steven Miles MP, Deputy Premier and Member for Murrumba.
NS Group was engaged by the Queensland Department of Education to provide project management and superintendent services for this project.
The works comprised the construction of:
- three two-storey buildings housing 30 teaching spaces, plus staff rooms and amenities
- multipurpose sporting courts and bicycle enclosure
- a covered area and play spaces with landscaping
- an undercover car park and additional open car parking.
NS Group Project Manager, Jayden Smith, said the Griffin State School expansion project was a joy to work on.
“Delivered in multiple stages to align with the start-of-year dates, the entire Griffin State School project flowed seamlessly due to fantastic cooperation amongst all stakeholders,” Jayden said.
“Congratulations to all project partners involved in a great outcome for the Griffin State School community.”
Since 2018, NS Group has been working with the Queensland Department of Education on over 10 school projects.
