Smalls Rd Public School, Ryde NSW

Supporting school construction with engineered building solutions

The NSW Government is investing $6.7 billion over the next four years to deliver 190 new and upgraded schools to support community growth across NSW. Studco® is proud to be delivering engineered building solutions for these school projects, including the exceptional new build at Smalls Road Public School in Ryde, NSW.

Studco top hat sections support the curved façade of the building.

With a growing population in the Northern District area, the new primary school will consist of 43 learning spaces for 1000 students and 70 staff. The three-storey circular design, by Conrad Gargett Architects, wraps around a central courtyard at the heart of the school campus, to encourage student curiosity and collaboration.

Richard Crookes Construction engaged Studco Building Systems® to design and supply external framing solutions that would support the buildings continuous arc shape and façade cladding.

Studco's technical team engineered a structural framing solution using Studco Steel Stud & Track products.
Outdoor ceilings subject to external wind pressure are framed with Studco top hats for maximum strength.
Huge skylight features allow tinted natural light to filter into the stairwells.

The construction of the school’s curved external walls posed significant challenges for the contractors and Studco’s engineering team; resolved through collaborative designs and engineered solutions. The designs ensured a structurally sound external frame, using Studco’s structural stud and track and top hat sections, without over complicating the installation process for the installers on site.

Studco takes pride in working closely with clients to provide effective solutions for external framing. Get in touch with Studco’s Sydney engineers to find out how we can make a difference to your next project on 1300 255 255.
