The Southport School

RPS’ Gold Coast team has delivered strategic planning and landscape architecture support for key projects at The Southport School on the Gold Coast.

‘Stop, drop and go’ parking connection

Our Gold Coast landscape architecture team have designed and delivered a 'stop, drop and go' parking connection, creating a safe drop-off and pick-up environment for students and their families at The Southport School.

Delivering a landscape design and construction program, our team met the challenge of delivering a project which complemented the landscape of the adjacent residential neighbours, public open space and existing roundabout landscape design. 

A feature of the design is a striking terraced sandstone amphitheatre, creating a casual place for the students to socialise and incorporates a staircase and balustrade to the parking drop zone. Tactile wayfinding treatments were also incorporate into the design to ensure safety compliance.

Community Infrastructure Designation

To enable expansion and improvement of the school campus, our planning team worked with The Southport School and state government to establish a Community Infrastructure Designation for the masterplanning and construction of the school’s new facilities.

The approval of the designation fast-tracks the planning process for the school, as they no longer need multiple development applications for the $40m investment in refurbishing the existing buildings and constructing new facilities.
