Building the future of learning

There’s a transformation happening in the world of learning and education. It’s no longer just about cultivating enquiring minds. It’s about providing a learning environment where the world’s social and environmental problems can be solved. That’s where our education specialists at WGE come in. Through the innovative design of world-class education campuses and schools – we’re helping create the future.

We’ve been responsible for projects in primary, secondary and tertiary education centres, working on developments at Melbourne’s Monash University and Perth’s University of Western Australia, Curtin University and Edith Cowan University.

The education sector has very special needs when it comes to engineering. It’s far more than just designing a brilliant building. It’s about:

  • environmental impact
  • integration of systems and interfaces
  • class dynamics
  • flexibility and flow across the whole of the learning campus

Design directly influences student and teacher behaviour which in turn affects learning outcomes. At all times our priority is to understand the desired outcomes for students, while engaging all stakeholders in the project.

We don’t take it lightly because we know that our work has the power to shape the future. In truth, our work is all part of the education.

Our advice to clients

Look for experienced people who are abreast of what’s happening globally, especially the ever-changing concepts of pedagogy and interactive and collaborative learning models. Education is continually evolving. You need to work with people that will really challenge you to consider new ideas.
