  • Kirwan High School - Bricks & Masonry Blocks | designplace
    Its primary function is to accommodate 20 general learning areas and the associated teacher and staff facilities Some rooms can be combined to create a larger space for occasions such as senior exams The concrete framed building is clad in coloured steel and compressed fibrecement sheeting at the upper levels The ground floor is constructed in face brickwork This is a limited material palette but all incredibly robust says Ms Atkinson For any school the materials need to be very robust and low maintenance so that money spent on maintenance and operational costs can be minimised The use of durable face brickwork at ground level is particularly appropriate for a school that has turned out a string of Rugby League champions Brickwork capped with a concrete beam was also used to create low external seating areas scattered around the facility However a late addition to the building is undoubtedly its most prominent external feature A plant room servicing the Year 7 Facility and several other buildings is housed behind two massive perforated screens that rise two storeys The screens are constructed in concrete masonry that is captured in prefabricated steel frames The blockwork pattern is repetitive yet demanding on the blocklayers skills Kirwan State High School Three 190 x 190 mm blocks were stacked connected by dowels and each block tied back using custom made stainless steel ties to a rectangular hollow section steel behind The cavities of the three halfblocks were then hand grouted Next an engaged pier block aka a granny chair was mortared into position and another engaged pier inverted over this and mortared into place This continued along the three courses then rising for the next three As the framework was slightly curved allowance had to be made in the vertical joint widths The resulting two
