Pullenvale State Primary School

Pullenvale State Primary School

ABM Architects implement a combination of solutions to make education spaces safer for children in a multi-level environment.  Window suites typically are a combination of fixed  glass panes at low level and louvres at high level to facilitate air flow. Alternatively, reinforced mesh is used on operable glass panels (sliding or awning types) to prevent accidental falls through the window.

ABM Architects have long seen this as an issue when designing for Education where the building contains multiple levels

Arch Bishop Duhig Begins!Construction of the Archbishop Duhig Nursing Home redevelopment in Holland Park as designed and documented by ABM Architects has begun.

This special event is the result of many months of meticulous design and documentation.  The positive streetscape and local amenity contribution led to a seamless planning approval.  All the while, ABM continued to work with the client and its operators to meet their exacting requirements, along with facilitating the G.M.C.C. process with the managing contractor.

ABM Architects have recently completed works at Caloundra Rise and Stretton Gardens and are proud to be part of this project.  Our experience in Aged Care and independent living projects spans decades, providing an extensive knowledge base when working with each provider.

Watch this space for more as this project evolves.

Blade Lighting concept - invigorates the space.

Blade Lighting concept – invigorates the space.

ABM Architects and Aurecon are proud to receive this award.  ABM coined the concept to an interested All Saints Primary School. ABM Architects were looking to soften yet invigorate the library, making it the nucleus of activities both during school hours and after. ABM are very proud to be recognised through Aurecon’s submission to The Lighting Society and thank all involved with the project. Download brochure sheet here of project.
