Sienna Catholic Primary School – Stage 1B
PREFABRICATED BUILDING FOR UNINTERRUPTED LEARNING
Working on Stage 1B of Sienna Catholic Primary School, Pretect were able to offer the convenience of off-site prefabrication to avoid lengthy disruptions to the school. In a matter of just weeks, the building had been erected with minimal impact on the comfort, learning environment and safety of the students.
The remarkable construction of the first stage of Sienna Catholic Primary School by Pretect set a high standard for future developments in Lucas, Victoria. Having completed the project on schedule, despite extreme weather conditions, Pretect was on track to move onto Stage 1B – the construction of an adjacent building with a contract value of $1.95m.
In this instance, one of the main challenges was that the Stage 1 facilities were already occupied by students and staff. This meant that any activity from preparation to installation, had to be conducted around term breaks. Pretect were once again able to offer the convenience of off-site prefabrication, thereby avoiding the lengthy disruptions that are unavoidable with on-site building.
In a matter of weeks, the building had been erected with the least possible impact on the comfort, learning environment and safety of the students. The new addition was particularly special as it was designed with consideration of the feedback on Stage 1 facilities, acquired from students and staff who had first-hand experience of their functionality and features.
The new building boasts impressive features including sound insulation between different sized learning spaces, superior acoustic treatments and the inclusion of Pretect’s signature hinged roof system. This is designed to achieve impressive ceiling height and natural light into the centre of the building while allowing efficient transportation of the modules with the roof folded down.
Students and staff have benefited greatly from a modern, flexible and highly durable building addition that was delivered on time and within budget, all the while respecting the priority of maintaining an undisturbed learning environment.Back to Completed Projects
