LOTE Drama

Dec 12, 2013


Project Name:  Melbourne Grammar School - LOTE Drama Centre

Project Duration:  2012


Scope of Works

ATS were the electrical sub-contractor to Buxton Constructions as the winning tenderer for this project.   The project involved the internal refurbishment of the upper level of four interconnecting heritage buildings to become a new LOTE (Language other than English) Centre and Drama teaching facility.



Throughout the project the ATS team adopted a flexible approach on a very restricted site.  ATS managed to work around the Schools strict requirements with minimal disruption to the day to day functioning of the School.

The end result of the ATS work has been a remarkable transformation of a dysfunctional area into a vibrant teaching and resource space.   The space has excellent lighting, power, data and audio fixtures and fittings that represent both the challenges and rewards that come from the School having heritage buildings.  These buildings need sensitive restoration to maintain their historic links yet make them highly functional for today’s students.

The School is also committed to a high level of environmentally sustainable design, and although it did not seek to obtain an accredited green star rating, the project works reflect an equivalent compliance of between 4 & 5 stars.

The School is very pleased with works provided by ATS and the outcome of this project.
