Our Lady of Mercy College - Parramatta NSW

Client: OLMC Parramatta

Location: Parramatta, NSW

Architect: Stanton Dahl Architects

Working with Stanton Dahl Architects, Reitsma completed the new three storey educational complex in Parramatta. The project was situated opposite Pirtek Stadium, which is within an operational school. The building's design is flexible, and provides for numerous ways for sports and community gatherings to be held within the spaces. Due to the nature of a restricted site, the roof top is a trafficable playspace, suitable for wide range of sports. The construction process was challenging, with the project built almost to the boundary on two street frontages. The site access was via an internal road through the school which was shared between Reitsma and the staff/students. The building contains various forms and finishes including a large portion of off form concrete, pre-cast concrete, timber panelling and corten steel.
