Brigidine College

Located in the inner-city Brisbane suburb of Indooroopilly, Brigidine College follows the example of St. Brigid, "a woman of vision and courage, who actively challenged the social, political, and cultural structures of her time."

With the campus located on a steep hill, the design of two new buildings for Brigidine College was an intricate task, resulting in a new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) building and an Administrative Building to become the College's new face.

The new STEM Centre includes flexible teaching spaces and laboratories that inspire knowledge and encourage collaborative teaching styles. The STEM building is linked to the upper campus by a bridge from the garden terrace, which acts as a pedestrian spine.

The building includes various systems to support future integrated learning opportunities, a 30kW rooftop photovoltaic array, energy management, and mixed-mode HVAC systems for the classroom and lab spaces. 

Within the new teaching spaces, the ICT and audio-visual systems support flexible and collaborative teaching styles with local wireless presentation systems and intuitive control systems for both the staff and students.    

Introba’s involvement in the project extended to mechanical, electrical, ICT, fire protection, vertical transport, and hydraulic services and showcased their knowledge in specialist lighting, audio-visual, and sustainability consultancy.
