Discovery Christian College

Discovery Christian College

Sports Centre + Lunch Shade Area

Spantech was contracted to design and construct the Spantech Covered Area and a small Lunch Shade Cover in the centre of the school.

The Spantech covered area brings a new dimension of opportunity to Discovery Christian College and the broader community.  It provides for a variety of ball games and a parade, gathering and general play area.  These sports and gatherings can now be undertaken without the worry of rain or sun but still with the breathtaking mountain views.

The building has been designed to be enclosed in the future with a large space provided on the western end for a performance stage.

Listen, make it easy, deliver

The project Superintendent that assisted the College was McLellan Bush Architects, a Brisbane-based practice that specialises in school projects. Architect Natalie Bush and the team at McLellan Bush lived up to their corporate vision: ‘Listen, make it easy, deliver’.
