Mercy Education- Catherine McAuley College – Masterplan
Catherine McAuley College is a Catholic, co-educational Mercy Sisters School located in Bendigo, Central Victoria. Within Bendigo, the college is located over two campuses, Coolock Campus being located approximately 6km to the east of the CBD, and the St Marys Campus located approximately 800m to the north of CBD. It was a goal of the college for all learners to engage in deep learning that is transferable and contributes to the greater good of society and the development of the whole person with specific attention to Mercy values. It is the colleges belief that their students and staff contributions positively impact our community and beyond.
RMG in conjunction with e+ Architecture were commissioned by Mercy Education Limited in 2017 to prepare a Masterplan for the college.
The purpose of the Masterplan was to both rationalise the optimum use of the existing facilities and to provide a planning framework for development of the college over the next 20 years.
In preparing the Masterplan, RMG worked with Catherine McAuley College and its Stakeholders to define the objectives of the Master Plan, develop a Brief for the Masterplan, provide alignment of the Masterplan with the Schools Business Plan, developed understanding of the constraints and opportunities of the sites and developed staging plans that aligned with the schools growth trajectory and cashflows.
