We are thrilled to see Toowoomba Grammar School’s (TGS) recently completed Roberts reconfiguration and refurbishment being enjoyed by students and staff!
The Roberts building had begun to show its age with low natural light, outdated fitout, and lack of connection and visibility between learning areas.
In close consultation with TGS’ teaching staff and executive team, Novum developed plans to open up the existing floor plates, bring in more indirect daylight, improve visual connection and flexibility between spaces, and improve each room’s acoustic performance to better support collaborative teaching and learning.
TGS has reported that students and staff love the new spaces and that their contemporary teaching practices and outstanding learning outcomes are now much better supported.
As the school nears its sesquicentenary, TGS has engaged with Novum to develop a new Master Plan which includes several new purpose-built facilities, coupled with adaptive re-use of some of their existing building stock.
This approach will ensure that TGS remains one of Queensland’s leading education providers whilst also minimising their impact on the environment and honouring their rich 150-year history.
