A far cry from the traditional temporary portable classrooms of the past, the new architecturally designed, modular classrooms are now popping up in schools around the state. The Government’s $200 million investment in the program has enabled schools to move with these more permanent alternatives.
To avoid any disruption to students, staff, or the school term, the characteristics of a modular build are very attractive in education projects. Advance planning and quicker construction times allow for buildings to be erected during school holidays whilst the students are off-site.
“The ability to complete the project within this timeframe is crucial. It is not only about minimising disruption to the classes, but also about avoiding safety risks to the students during construction”, explained Product Sales Manager, Simon Whalen.
