$70m Lindfield Learning Village Upgrade

This $70 Asset Repositioning project involved major capital works to convert, reconfigure and refurbish the ex-Lindfield UTS site into a new K-12 School and associated facilities.

The program of works involved refurbishing the existing facilities (approx. 31,000m² across seven (7) levels in a complicated floorplan) and construction of additional accommodation.

The campus has previously been recognised for its innovative approach and excellence in design. The site historically received the Sulman Medal in 1978, and a 1972 RAIA Merit Award and a Royal Australian Horticultural Society Award for Bush Landscape Design.

To preserve the heritage of the site, Hindmarsh carefully delivered the substantial upgrade with a focus on preserving Lindfield’s’ legacy. These works included building conservation works, façade restoration elements and repairing the existing concrete façade which have been affected by concrete cancer.

Upgrades were also required to ensure on-going compliance with current Australian Building Codes and Australian Standards, these included existing stair treads, stair balustrades, ramps, general accessibility, auditorium access and egress requirements and a few other elements.  

The project was delivered adjacent to the operational School and completed in stages to enable ‘live’ occupation. Hindmarsh implemented an extensive collaborative stakeholder management plan to ensure the impact of the works was minimised for all facility users.
