We bring a pursuit of knowledge and a passion for future-shaping solutions to our primary, secondary and tertiary education projects.

GroupGSA transforms early childhood, primary and secondary schools, TAFE and universities across Australia into places of discovery and growth for current and future generations of students, teachers, academics and communities.

We provide urban design, architecture and landscape expertise to the education sector through the design and delivery of new buildings, adaptive reuse and refurbishment of existing buildings, masterplanning and the design of external spaces, including outdoor learning environments and playgrounds.

We design connected, creative and collaborative mixed-use spaces with functional amenity to enrich learning and foster curiosity using diverse and inclusive modern learning settings, from proven teaching and training outcomes, both inside and outside the classroom.

Our design services prioritise accessibility, diversity and sustainability, as well as student and teacher wellbeing and their evolving needs of tomorrow.
