Inertia delivered civil and structural engineering services on a new GLA building at Gumdale State School under a D+C contract with BADGE Constructions.
The building comprises eight new general learning areas, two outdoor learning areas, and a large sports store within the three-story structure. A tiered seating space is included in the building design to facilitate spectators for the adjacent sports courts and covered walkways to connect the new building to the existing school.
The building structure employed the use of both traditionally reinforced and post-tensioned floor slabs, with a conventionally framed roof. Feature screening was designed around the external stairs and outdoor learning areas.
