TEMPLESTOWE SECONDARY COLLEGE
Working closely with project management company 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 its 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 off-site, the build process was able to be completed in half the time required when compared to a traditional build. The construction was completed off-site at Modscape’s modular construction hub in Brooklyn in just 12 weeks, with the modules being installed in a day during the school holidays to minimise disruption to staff and the student learning program. On-site and landscaping works were completed shortly thereafter.
