TRINITY HOUSE SCHOOLS - PALM LAKES ESTATE & TINLEY MANOR
Tinley Manor lies just north of Ballito along KwaZulu-Natal’s north coast. A new housing development, Palm Lakes Estate was established a few years ago and makes provision for schools, recreation, mixed use, commercial and retail property development.
ADvTech Schools (Pty) Ltd appointed Osmond Lange to design and assist in the supervision of the construction of their pilot Trinity House School in KZN.
Upon completion of the final phase the school will include a pre-primary, preparatory (primary) and College level (high school) schools.
Currently phase one consists of the pre-primary school catering for 350 pupils. The prep school and college will cater for 700 pupils each.
It is envisaged that hostels will be incorporated at some point.
Sport is a focal point of the school brand and maximising land use to accommodate the various sporting codes on offer at Trinity House, Palm Lakes was challenging considering the site was heavily sloped with a high clay content.
Upon completion it is estimated that the campus will have a total capital investment of R170 Million in today’s money.
