Construction company Multiplex has been awarded a contract to collaborate with School Infrastructure NSW to plan and design a major upgrade to Mosman High School, which is located on Sydney’s Lower North Shore.

The upgrade falls under the NSW Government’s $7 billion investment to deliver over 200 new and upgraded schools. Mosman’s upgrade, in particular, is to cater for growing enrollment numbers, which is expected to be about 1,200 students.

16 new home base classrooms, new canteen, new multipurpose hall and gymnasium, modern library and new staff and administrative facilities will be included within the upgrade, as well as a rooftop sports court.

Multiplex’s Regional Managing Director, David Ghannoum, said he was pleased to be working with the NSW Government on the project.

“Multiplex is thrilled to be part of this state significant development which will help to shape the future of education and learning in Mosman,” said Mr Ghannoum.

“As part of our bid we put forward an opportunity to create more flexible learning spaces for Mosman High School, as well as greater connectivity to nature.

We are looking forward to working with School Infrastructure NSW in the coming months to progress the design to be able to be delivered.”

Previously, Multiplex has been involved in a range of construction projects in the education sector across Australia.

These include the University of New South Wales’ $187 million Science and Engineering and $125 million Biological Sciences buildings, along with accommodation facilities at La Trobe University and Monash University in Melbourne.

Construction is set to begin in early 2022.
