Work toward establishing a single Melba site began in 2013.
- Investigations focused on which site to develop.
- The Regeneration Project identified the senior campus site as the preferred location.
- Some 1.2 million was then spent over 2 years on planning and architectural drawings.
- The total school rebuild was costed at $25-27 million.
- A Project Control Group was established in July 2015 including Melba College representatives.
