The Ascent Consortium, a joint venture between MODE and Macquarie Capital, recently presented an unsolicited bid for a new vertical school in West End to the Queensland Government.

Having identified the need for additional resources in an area where existing schools are over capacity, we have proposed a 12 storey middle school facility for 1500-2000 students that would alleviate pressure on both West End State School and Brisbane State High School, and allow for future growth as the West End and Kurilpa Riverfront Redevelopment plans are realised.

The design has been adapted to local Brisbane conditions, responding specifically to subtropical climatic conditions, and in particular to anticipated flood conditions associated with the nearby Brisbane River.
