Students are enjoying their own modern, multipurpose facility
The Wilsonton State High School multipurpose hall is one of many projects being delivered under the Advancing Queensland School Infrastructure initiative. This initiative is helping develop many important infrastructure projects at schools across the state of Queensland.
This project was delivered by Wiley under a design and construct model and fast-tracked for completion, with a 4.5-week design period and a 20-week construction period.
Key objectives of the project:
The hall is more than 2,000m² and includes:
The school community will now be able to assemble and hold sporting and other events in their own hall, rather than having to use the Toowoomba State High School hall.
“It’s an exciting time for our school, as the new hall provides us with a critical piece of infrastructure that will enable so many cultural, sporting and administrative activities to take place in a modern, purpose-built facility. The Advancing Queensland Schools initiative means our school will enjoy the benefits of a school hall much sooner than we had thought possible, which is great for students, staff and the Wilsonton State High School community.” Marcus Jones, Wilsonton State High School Principal (at time of construction).
