Northgate State School

New single-storey facility connected to existing buildings


Fleetwood was contracted to supply and install a new permanent modular building at Northgate State School in Queensland for the Department of Education. The project saw the building situated next to an existing building with covered walkways, ramps and stairs delivered as part of the scope of works, which connected the building to existing walkways and ramps for easy access to a range of classrooms from the main campus.


Fleetwood’s role was to deliver a full turnkey solution, which specifically included a new single storey permanent modular building (5 module, 180m2), which was located toward the rear of the campus that will act as the beginning of a new school quadrant and further works. Furthermore, decking’s, ramps and covered paths were installed to existing facilities allowing for safe access between classrooms and the campus for students and teachers. The new style of building is a prototype in its infancy that has since been rolled out to a range of schools across the state for the Queensland Department of Education and Training.


The advantages of delivering a modular solution is eminent as shown with the ability to deliver an entire structure over just a few days and have it operational in a fraction of the time of a traditional build. Upgrading from outdated legacy buildings to a specifically designed education building was a major benefit for the school who required these facilities to allow for the future growth of the campus. The semi-permanent design and brick work incorporated has not only improved the overall aesthetics of the campus but has a longer lifespan.
