Preston North East Primary School

Overview

Fleetwood was contracted to deliver a design and construct solution for Preston North East Primary School as part of the VSBA Permanent Modular Program. The school required a central hub for various learning environments plus staff and administration facilities for the start of the 2019 school year. The building replaced the schools ageing transportable classrooms that had been servicing the school in recent times. In addition to the delivery and installation of the facility, Fleetwood completed further landscaping and outside walkways along with providing decanting to the school for the duration of the project.

Solution

The project saw over 50 modules delivered over a week, which encompassed the two separate buildings equating to over 1,000 square metres. A full turnkey solution covering all aspects of the delivery of the project was provided with Fleetwood responsible for the initial site set-up, off-site prefabrication of the building and all onsite works to surrounding areas. Fleetwood also provided the school with an outdoor sheltered decking that linked the two multipurpose buildings together with surrounding walkways allowing for easy access to outdoor play areas.

Benefits

The school is now able to house most of its student classes, administration staff and teachers out of the permanent modular facility. Moving from outdated light timber construction portables to a specifically designed education hub. The school is now equipped with a learning hub conducive to modern learning needs that will allow its students to reap the benefits in the short and long term.
