BSS seeks to be an inspirational force for women to reach their full potential as transformative leaders. The strategic intent of the BSS Transformation Project is to create exemplary facilities to enhance it’s leading program in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and the Arts with a strong emphasis on the intersection between the two disciplines. The environment will provide spaces for learning in the 21st century and act as a ‘third teacher’, provoking and enhancing learning in inspirational spaces.

The scope of work included a major addition and interior renovation to an existing historical building. The new build involved the creation of a gymnasium, 2 floors of classrooms devoted to the STEM program and a welcome centre. The renovation included the conversion of a gymnasium into two floors of space that accommodates a theatre for live performing arts, a music rehearsal hall and an art studio.
