EPPING WEST PUBLIC SCHOOL
NEW SOUTH WALES
Partnering with the Schools Infrastructure NSW, Hansen Yuncken and Pedavoli Architects, Modscape was appointed to manufacture 29 new classrooms, amenities and staff facilities for Epping West Public School.
Epping West Public School is one part of the NSW Government’s $7 billion investment over the next four years, continuing the delivery of more than 200 new and upgraded schools across NSW. This makes the largest investment in public education infrastructure in the history of NSW and will benefit many communities state-wide.
Modular construction was adopted as the preferred delivery methodology to reduce the impact on the existing school operations and wider community. While Hansen and Yuncken completed required early works, Modscape constructed the first 39 modules for building S in 14 weeks, delivering the modules over two consecutive weekends. Once completed the staff and students happily moved into Building S before an existing building was demolished and the remaining 12 modules of building T were manufactured and installed.
Epping West Public School is a fine example of how DfMA and Modern Methods of Construction can deliver permanent, high-quality schools in a fast-tracked manner to cater to Sydney’s growing population. With minimal disruption to the existing schools operations, staff and students were able to remain teaching and working while construction was undertaken.
Comprising of 3,673sqm, Epping West Public Schools expansion accommodates for 600 students, meeting the critical demands for students in the western suburbs.
