• Winner of the 2014 NSW Master Builders Excellence in Construction Award for “Restoration of a Historic Building”

Purchased by the Shore School in 2009, the historic Graythwaite Estate in North Sydney has been redeveloped as an expansion of the School’s adjacent campus, and comprises the conservation and adaptive reuse of the Heritage listed Graythwaite House and its outbuildings, the construction of new educational buildings and the enhancement of the site’s parkland setting.

Graythwaite Estate Stage 1 forms a major part of implementing the 15-year master plan being undertaken by the Sydney Church of England Grammar School (SHORE).

ACOR’s involvement included hydraulic, structural, civil and building services.  The challenge was upgrading the buildings and facilities to meet current standard and code requirements but still maintaining the heritage fabric.  The opening of Graythwaite House in 2014 marked the 125th anniversary of the school.
