All Hallows’ School project reaches Practical Completion

20th March, 2023

Kane Constructions worked alongside All Hallows’ School and Fulton Trotter Architects to deliver the first cross-laminated timber (CLT) education building in Queensland.

The Potter Building Adaptive Re-use project included significant alterations and additions to an existing four-storey building located in the centre of the inner-city heritage-listed campus of All Hallows’ School.

The extension works included a three-storey structure that features a standout ‘Drum Stair’ and a Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) composite structure.

The most notable innovation of the project was the use of a hybrid CLT and steel structure. This was used due to the capacity of the existing substructure and the buildability restrictions involved in inserting the new facility in-between two existing buildings.

The school is now enjoying a variety of new spaces, including:

  • A technology hub
  • Junior and senior libraries
  • Eight teaching and collaborative areas
  • A green screen film and TV room
  • Breakout study spaces
  • IT and career support services
  • Staff rooms, meeting and function rooms
  • A roof terrace with views of the Brisbane skylines
  • Amenities for students and staff
