Exciting milestones lay ahead for Rivermount College as they celebrate their 30th year in 2022, and will soon begin redevelopment and expansion of one of their original buildings to become a contemporary, inclusive and welcoming Administration centre for students, parents, visitors and staff.
The project will involve the reconfiguration of the school’s existing Reception, administrative staff work areas and offices to promote better access to key staff members and better reflect the College’s contemporary, inclusive and collaborative culture.
A large number of meeting, training and interview rooms are planned, allowing for a wide range of collaborative work and meetings between students, parents, and staff.
Staff work areas have been designed to remain flexible as the school grows and as their operational and staffing needs evolve over time.
The “friendliness” and “approachability” of the building to various end-users, including students and parents, has been a key consideration, and coupled with the school’s unique operational requirements, a layout incorporating three distinct reception spaces has been developed.
The Main Reception interfaces primarily with visitors to the College, and has direct access to other key areas of the building for simple, clear wayfinding and staffing efficiencies.
A new Secondary Reception will provide students access to key teaching and leadership staff, as well as welfare, support and counselling staff.
The Primary School will also gain a new dedicated Reception area, encouraging access by parents to the Head of Primary School and other key leadership staff.
Novum has been partnering with Rivermount College for the past four years and the Administration Building redevelopment will be our eighth project working together, due for completion in 2023!
