The Centre for Innovation and Creativity, part of Nexus Church and Northside Christian College, marks the start of Condev's expansion into the Brisbane private schooling market.

"Condev has vast experience building school projects and we are excited that the quality of work we provide is being recognised and embraced in our state's capital. This is hopefully the start of many future schooling projects in the Brisbane area."
