Our expert team has provided services to design, expand and enhance a variety of education schemes across Australia, including private schools, government departments and higher educational establishments.

We understand the value of modern and inspirational designs in learning environments. Our expansive portfolio includes bespoke work on schools, colleges, universities, research and development facilities, science laboratories, student residences, as well as community amenities such as performing arts spaces, sports facilities, museums, training centres and libraries. We tailor our services and designs to meet each customer’s needs, without sacrificing our core values.


Innovative designs fuel exceptional learning outcomes
As education at all levels continues to integrate ever-changing technology, ensuring that institutions have the potential to incorporate these, as and when they are introduced, is essential to modern learning. We support the design and delivery of buildings with the aim of enriching the educational experience for students and supporting sound educational practices, ensuring that children and adults alike are learning in optimal conditions.

Environmental and economic concerns
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Each element of our designs is carefully considered to minimise its environmental impact, whilst providing maximum value for money. In accomplishing this goal, we focus on individual aspects of the project life cycle, from analysis to facilities management, in order to provide an excellent and holistic end product. We give special attention to a range of other areas of the project life cycle, including planning, engineering design, value management, energy modelling, as well as whole of life maintenance strategies.

Our experience in the education sector sets us apart from our competitors, as does our dedication to creating environments in which students of all ages can thrive.

Featured Project

Deakin University Central Precinct

The project involved the construction of four new buildings built around a central atrium. The building houses teaching, sports, lecture theatre, data centre, retail, and office accommodation type areas.

ESD innovations included natural ventilation, active chilled beams, displacement ventilation and solar assisted heating.

Waterman was engaged to provide the design and documentation of the scheme, and we also delivered construction phase services. Our teams delivered multidisciplinary support, spanning mechanical, electrical, fire, hydraulic, vertical transport and ESD services.
