The safety of pupils at Scots College was taken into account when a $14million Creative and Performing Arts Centre Development was being investigated. The project included quake strengthening of the 1960s Chapel Hall adjoining the new building. It did not meet the earthquake code required for an educational facility, so to have it 100% strengthened for a minor cost of $105,000 was a no-brainer for the project's Impact Director, Gareth Palmer. The doors opened for the brand new Arts Centre - the largest building project in the school's history - just last week, and the state-of-the art facility certainly packs some punch. The 3-storeyed 2500sqm centre is fully equipped with a theatre, recording studio, acoustically-designed practice rooms, a rehearsal studio and facilities for film and animation production.
