About the project

Marcus Oldham College attracts students from across Australia, as Australia’s only independent agricultural and equine business management college. Thus, it was integral to this project that we built a home away from home for students where they not only felt comfortable, but included the stunning landscape of the rolling hills and promoted social interaction with other students.

Set across two storeys, the accommodation wing includes the following facilities:

  • 30 dorm rooms
  • Two communal kitchens
  • Two sets of male and female amenities
  • Laundry facilities

Cleverly designed by 3iD Architecture, the buildings passive design ensured the accommodation facilities were acoustically sound, durable and low maintenance, whilst aesthetically remaining modern and fresh. The external entrance, with its woven stainless steel mesh sails and brick columns creates a private, yet striking first impression upon entering the building. Its black window features surround the entire building, forming part of its environmental sustainable design (ESD), which was skillfully considered by 3iD Architecture throughout the design process.

Lyons Construction has thoroughly enjoyed delivering such a well-designed building and working with the fabulous team at Marcus Oldham College and our highly-competent team of sub-contractors.
