Springfield Anglican College Proposes New Facility for Sports and Learning

Springfield Anglican College plans to construct new learning environments, a multi-purpose hall to accommodate a range of indoor sporting activities, and undercroft parking facilities.

The proposal seeks If approved, the two-storey development proposal will add a 2,623-sqm extension to the existing campus. It will include a multipurpose hall and learning environments along with associated amenities, staff areas and storage. The undercroft parking provisions will add 180 spaces on site including space for disability parking.

“This multipurpose hall structure has been designed to respond to the natural topography of the site with a single level presenting internally to the school campus with an undercroft area below that accommodates for parking areas and associated storage and maintenance areas,” planners at Land Partners stated.

The primary upper level of the building is where the learning rooms will be contained and will have an entry foyer and pedestrian apron that are accessible both internally and externally.

The main space, on the other hand, will feature a double-height internal void to accommodate a range of court-based sporting activities, a stage, and a back-of-house area where there will be toilets, change rooms and storage.

The facility is expected to start construction in 2023 to coincide with the 25th anniversary celebration of The Springfield Anglican College.

Established in 1988, The Springfield Anglican College is a non-selective Christian co-educational school that caters to students from Kindergarten to Year 12.

The school has  three campuses: The Tiny Tartan Kindergarten, The Springfield Anglican College Primary (primary schooling) and Secondary (secondary schooling) campuses.
