    Better Electricians was awarded the contract to undertake all electrical works at St Augustine’s College at Brookvale on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Stage One of the project, involved a redevelopment of the school’s library space in the existing Brimson Centre into a new Technology and Applied Studies design and technology facility involving a major footprint extension. Stage Two involved the redevelopment and extension of two existing buildings in the Goold and Lecceto wings into a large hub of general and specialist teaching spaces. The extension also allowed for the integration of a new ‘vertically distributed’ library, spanning areas across all levels. St Augustine’s College approached the Two Stage development with a brief to provide learning environments that promote a shift toward flexible learning through the provision of varied student experiences and activities, which are integrated into the College’s core educational model. The design by architects FJMT Studio was finalised after numerous staff engagement sessions to establish an understanding of the College’s educational model and aspirations for new learning environments, especially in an era of development and experimentation in the design of educational spaces. A significant challenge for the team was to create minimal impact on student day to day activities. This involved programming potential high impact activities in school holidays and out of school hours. Movement of materials and supplies also had to be coordinated to ensure all safety standards were observed to protect students, staff, visitors to the school and all onsite staff.
