As part of the ‘Building the Future’ program, Dover Heights High School was expanded to provide an improved educational facility with a special role in the Performing Arts. The redevelopment is also part of the schools’ growth within the community as a campus of the Eastern Suburbs Evening College. Developed to accommodate up to 1200 students with specialist media, communications, performing arts facilities, a gymnasium with additional learning spaces, a new library, staff and administrative facilities. The proposal included the refurbishment of existing learning spaces, all supporting services, a 2-storey car park, site works and landscaping. A new public entrance to the original 1940’s building contains a new reception area with public enquiry counters, meeting rooms and staff areas to provide a contemporary public address for the school reflecting the community culture, identity and use.
