Hazel Glen Secondary College and Primary School

A rapidly growing area in Melbourne, Doreen in the Shire of Whittlesea, has recently constructed a number of government and independent educational facilities to support the growth in this region.

The Hazel Glen Secondary College and Primary School in Doreen South is one such Government facility, recently established as a leading educational provider. Lambert & Rehbein, as part of the project consultant team lead by Minx Architecture, were involved in the Structural/Civil Engineering design and delivery.

The facility is situated on 10 Hectares and comprises of the recently completed primary school and stage 1 of the Secondary College, with stage 2 to be completed in 2016.

Minx Architecture, through high quality design, delivered a vision to support growth activity in the area by the specification of innovative building materials and structural systems incorporating construction methods allowing for flexible use of internal and external spaces.  This included student gathering areas, terraces and sporting grounds as well as efficient use of vehicle and pedestrian access between all facilities throughout the site.

Lambert & Rehbein was commissioned to provide Structural and Civil design and documentation of the following components;

  • A 2000 sqm Learning Centre for the primary school;
  • A 2200 sqm Gymnasium building for both the primary school and secondary college. The structure is a steel framed clear span building supported by a pier and beam foundation system;
  • Administration building and Food Technologies building;
  • A 2 level Middle Years Learning Centre and S.T.E.A.M building comprising a combination of steel and concrete composite construction to achieve economies in column layout and flexible large open spaces;
  • Performing Arts Building;
  • 2 large ovals, netball courts and basketball courts with associated drainage; and
  • Car parking for 75 car spaces and access roads which link parking areas between the primary school and secondary college.

In addition to the above components the design team successfully achieved a number of challenges relating to the steep grade of a major section of the site, along with drainage outfall and interface treatment of adjoining roads, not yet constructed. Coupled with the early stage package  involving bulk filling one part of the site with 84,000 cubic metres of compacted engineered fill, for access and Drainage improvement, Lambert & Rehbein found this project rewarding and a successful outcome for the client.

Our Commitment To Accessibility

A number of accessibility features have been implemented across our website to make the website more accessible to people with visual, motor or cognitive disabilities. Below are some enhancements to our website that we consider beneficial to our users:


  • All links are text-based. If an image is used for any link, techniques are used to keep the text within the code so they are still text-friendly for screen readers, text-based browsers and for those who browser with styles off (this included consoles that cannot render cascading style sheets).
  • All link rollovers are high-contrast so they are easily distinguished from regular text and headlines that are not clickable.
  • Link content text is contextual when possible (eg. Instead of ‘more’, the link may read ‘more recent news’) to make navigation easier for screen readers.
