Addressing Increasing Student Numbers through New School Buildings, Refurbishments and Vertical Schools

How prepared is your organisation to respond to the rapid increase in student numbers across Australia?

Australia is experiencing a dramatic rise in student numbers. With an estimated 650,000 more by 2026, that represents an increase of 17% from today. In NSW this translates to needing 385 new classrooms every year for a decade with Victoria needing to build 220 new schools within that same period. This provides a myriad of major challenges including – spatial restrictions, funding and regulations. Schools must navigate these challenges in order to determine whether to increase school student enrolments either through new builds or retro-fitting existing structures.

Key themes to be addressed, but not limited to:

  • Building Vertical schools to overcome capacity constraints
  • Retrofitting old school buildings to expand capacity
  • Best practises for achieving your desired funding outcome
  • Solutions to council and planning regulation hurdles
