Since 2016, the Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) has invested in the transformation of school facilities across Victoria as part of the largest education reform in the State’s history. With a focus on delivering equitable and accessible learning opportunities, Victoria’s specialist schools have undergone milestone modernisations in addition to the construction of purpose-built facilities. Clyde Creek Primary School and Southern Autistic School are two recently completed developments central to the initiative, and both are providing enriching environments for children with diverse learning disadvantages.


MBM’s Melbourne team supported the developments across the development for the Clyde Creek Primary and Southern Autistic School projects. Our contributions included cost plans across all project phases, the provision of tender advice, and post-contract reporting. In collaboration with the consultant team, our cost managers ensured the delivery of two inclusive, accessible, and flexible school that meet the needs of all learners. Both projects will lastingly benefit children with special needs in growing communities, who now have better access to a greater choice of quality school services.


Speaking on the impacts of both projects, Victorian Associate Kim Luong highlighted how the developments will support the government’s objectives and improve access to equitable education. “These projects are invaluable to communities across the State and meet the government’s vision for educational opportunities in Victoria. The entire team involved across Clyde Creek Primary and Southern Autistic School is grateful to have played a key role in creating tailored learning environments and flexible spaces for children of all abilities.”


The modernisation of Southern Autistic School and the construction of Clyde Creek Primary School have been completed. Both schools, alongside a further 80 brand-new educational facilities, are open and catering to the needs of pupils in Victoria.
