In one day, Canberra’s Duffy Primary School expanded by 7 new learning spaces.
On Saturday 23 November 2013 the local community came together along with the ACT Minister for Education, Joy Burch to witness the lifting and assembling of 10 modules to create a new learning wing to the existing school.
Design Director Andrew Duffin, and Project Architect Andrew Tripet of NBRS+PARTNERS have created an open planned modern learning environment ready to house the equivalent of 7 classes, practical activity spaces, and staff areas. The modular design has allowed fast, safe and exciting state of the art learning spaces for a school which is experiencing roll growth pressure.
“It’s phenomenal, we weren’t expecting anything this amazing”
P&C Vice President & ex-student, Laura Boyer
The modular fabrication technique ensures precision quality control, embedded ESD, and a safe delivery method with very little disturbance to a busy operating school environment. The modules arrived with interior finishes complete, with services wired and plumbed ready for final connection and testing.
At its core the desire has been to create the best learning environment possible. The modular delivery just made sense in creating the right outcome.
