January 30th marked the official opening of the Orange Christian School’s new Hospitality Trade Training Facility as designed by Geolyse Architects. Geolyse’ General Manager Greg Cooper and company Architect, Tony Gray attended the opening as official guests of the school. Also in attendance were Hines Constructions General Manager David Hines and Paddy Barbor. The guest of honour was the Honourable John Cobb MP who cut the ribbon to commemorate the opening. The work of both Geolyse and Hines construction was praised by the school principal Mrs Melissa Brown and Mr. Cobb.
Geolyse’ architectural manager Tony Gray said, “The design worked with the school’s requirements and is sympathetic to future development on the site. It was an exciting project to work on and was completed successfully under immense time pressure which was recognised and appreciated by the school.”
The facility will prove to be a great asset and provide a wonderful learning space for the students and features a cafe and bar, a commercial kitchen, classroom, food storage areas, male and female change rooms and an office.
