Funded by the NSW Department of Education, Arthur Phillip High School is the first public high-rise high school to be built in NSW. Located on the existing Paramatta site, the new 17-storey high school has been designed to accommodate up to 2,000 students. Each year group of 330 students has been provided with their own atrium and mezzanine level complete with gym and playground, offering full access to terraces incorporating meshed outdoor areas for social interactions. The school’s specialty rooms, such as the science laboratories, are located on the upper levels of the new building.
The school incorporates state-of-the-art, technology-rich and flexible learning spaces with adaptable / moveable furniture and room configurations, promoting innovative and collaborative learning. The existing school buildings built in the 1960s will be demolished to create more green space on the site.
Dewick & Associates prepared the hydraulic O&M manual for the project, providing hand over documentation associated with the specific systems installed as part of the project, including storm water and siphonic drainage, rainwater and landscape irrigation, sewer drainage incorporating a grease arrestor system and hot and cold water, in addition to boiling / chilled water and cold water dispensers, sanitary fixtures and fittings and fire safety equipment incorporating fire hose reels and a diesel fire pump set to serve the sprinkler system.
