Working closely with Sensum Group, Modscape designed and constructed a new prefabricated building for Templestowe Secondary College. The innovative modular structure houses the school’s Resource Centre – the learning and social hub of the campus. The Resource Centre has a full student kitchen and chill-out zones for students to study in comfort or meet up with friends. There is also a large silent study area for those who need peace and quiet. Curved walls and double height spaces add dynamic interest and edge, creating a unique centralised space for the school.
The project is part of the Victorian Government’s Permanent Modular School Buildings Program – an integral part of their Asbestos Safety Program. The initiative is responsible for the largest ever removal of asbestos containing materials from Victorian schools and for the delivery of more than 100 school projects over the next three years.
The modular building design offered a fast and efficient solution for the school. By completing the construction offsite, the build process was able to be completed in up to half the time required when compared to a traditional build. The construction was complete in just 12 weeks, off-site at Modscape’s modular construction hub in Brooklyn, with the modules being installed in a day during the school holidays to minimise disruption to staff and the student learning program. Onsite and landscaping works were completed shortly thereafter.
Modscape has constructed a number of prefabricated education facilities and modular classrooms for universities and schools across the country. Please contact us to discuss your next education project in more detail.
