Construction of the new secondary school at Kitchener Park in Subiaco will start.
PACT Construction has been awarded the forward and earthworks contract for the $68 million stage one of the build.
Works will start to realign the underground water pipes and services infrastructure ahead of the main building works starting in the middle of the year.
Students at Inner City College will enjoy modern specialist facilities equipped with innovative new technology, including a sports hall and gymnasium, lecture theatres and library as well as science, digital technology, food and textiles labs.
Meanwhile, the WA Minister for Planning has now approved the Subiaco Redevelopment Scheme, which transfers planning authority to the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.
Scheme 2 sets out a high level vision for the future of Subiaco, laying the groundwork for master planning for the future of Subiaco Oval, the Princess Margaret Hospital site and wider Subi East precinct to get underway.
Approval of the scheme is another milestone as the WA Government works to create more connected communities across Perth.
The iconic Subiaco Oval will be retained as a shared open space and the local community will also have access to the college’s playing courts and gymnasium.
The school will open to Year 7 students in 2020, expanding to cater for Year 7 to 12 students in 2025.
