One of South East Queensland's most accessible and sort after residential destinations is positioned between Brisbane and the Gold Coast and is known as Ormeau. The population continues to grow and the demographics continue to change meaning the need for quality amenities and institutes becomes a key focus for the local community of Ormeau.
The Brisbane Catholic Education looked at this and saw Ormeau as an ideal location for them to establish a high quality educational facility. They called on Bickerton Masters Architecture and planned to build a campus which would cater for the towns ever youthful and growing population.
The construction started in September 2010 despite a length consultative process and with key mandatory requirements locked in, Bickerton Masters Architecture were now ready to create their vision. Several factors came into play including the surrounding residential environment, the climate and crucially , the children that would make this place a part of their lives. The Mother Teresa Catholic Primary School was then built and colourful bricks were used.
The face brick was one of the major elements in the product mix of the construction from PGH Bricks.
An earthiness and balance was brought to the project which also provided a diverse and extensive colour palette to work with. Seven colours from the PGH Bricks vibrant collection were used in the project. Wasabi, Paris, Fizz, Watermelon, Tango, Cosmic and Rhapsody. All unique in their own way and adding individual charms to the project.
With the construction now complete, the students, parents and teachers have embraced their new school. With a number of different building structures including outdoor learning areas, prep and junior classrooms, a library and large covered play areas the schools vision of Teach, Challenge and transform is followed.
