Ason Group was commissioned in 2018 and undertook the necessary assessments in support of the delivery of Santa Sophia Catholic College. The project provides the development of a unique part 5 and part 6 storey building suitable for 1,920 primary and secondary students and a 60 student Catholic Early Learning Centre and was approved in April 2020. The Site is well connected to Box Hill North with cycle and pedestrian connections to the broader suburb.
The School is located within the Box Hill North Town Centre and provides three main hubs connected by terraced courtyards and garden spaces.
