Education Projects

CPG has a proven track record of successfully delivering a broad range of education sector projects.

We have undertaken extensive projects for public and private schools as well as colleges and universities.

We have particular expertise in working in and around operating facilities and successfully maintaining the clients functionality whilst minimising the impact on the educators and students experience.



Feature Project - The Iona

Project: St Columba Anglican School

Location: Port Macquarie

Project Value: $11M

Contract Type: Construction / Construction management

The IONA Performing Arts Centre at St Columba Anglican School is spread across two levels.  The new building brings together the music, drama and dance education programs for Kindergarten through to Year 12. The IONA features a 304 seat black box theatre with stage, adjoining dance studio, instrument, vocal and music rehearsal rooms, classrooms and associated staff spaces.

Through embracing the sites visibility and proximity to the School’s main entry, the inclusion of a prominent, boldly coloured entry canopy and glazed facade acts to engage the school community and visitors. The use of colour throughout the building including its feature walls, textures and even the doors makes the Iona visually appealing from so many angles.
