Client: Saint Stephen’s College
Location: Coomera, Queensland, Australia
Facility: New Music Centre
Scope Overview: Construction work won by tender.

Saint Stephen’s College is a co-educational, preparatory to Year 12 independent school at the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

Business value created for Saint Stephen’s College

Music programmes at Saint Stephen’s College offer students a blend of academic curriculum and co-curricular opportunities in woodwind, brass, percussion, strings, piano, guitar and voice.

The College also presents opportunities for students to participate at a more challenging level in the Symphony Orchestra, string ensembles, stage and concert bands, vocal ensembles and their Chamber Music Excellence Program.

This new music centre adds value to Saint Stephen’s college by providing a modern, human-centred designed facility that will enable their music program to grow from strength to strength.

The future development of their music programs housed in this facility, will entice enthusiastic, budding musicians to join their school community.
Vital to the success of this project is Wiley’s substantial experience in the education sector, including Catholic, Anglican and State Schools, TAFEs and Universities. Decades of delivering in live and challenging operational environments means that Wiley is well-suited to delivering in public school environments, where the safety of students and staff is of paramount importance.

The challenging scope Wiley delivered

  • Two storey acoustically-rated facility boasting 1,600m² gross floor area, fitted with high-end AV equipment
  • The ground floor contains:
  • Instrument studio rooms
  • 200+ tiered seating area for the main performance stage
  • The first floor contains:
  • General learning areas and music practice hall

Sense of community
Supporting the local community is a core value that Saint Stephen’s and Wiley people share. Therefore, local subcontractors and suppliers were used wherever possible.
