The Central Coast Grammar School, in Erina Heights on the NSW Central Coast, has a new 288 m sq modular study and recreation facility. The school is a primary and secondary college, with a growing student population.

The new structure sits comfortably in a bush setting, below a sloped landscaped area. It is linked to the other buildings on the campus by a brick pathway.

It has the look and feel of a permanent structure, with a wide verandah to provide shade and a place for students to gather. A horizontal Zincalume band is used effectively as a decorative feature and contrasts with the dominant slate blue finish.

Ausco Modular’s design team worked closely with the school to understand its requirements. The school’s need was for a large but flexible space with that could be used as a recreation room, study room, computer lab and exam room as required.

By opting for a modular building, the school achieved an affordable solution to its needs. Construction was fast and flexible and there was less interruption to the school’s routine than there would have been with a conventional building project.

Ausco Modular’s buildings are constructed to meet the energy requirements of Section J
of the BCA. Performance enhancement of buildings for energy and water consumption can be achieved, ideal for clients who want to do more than merely comply with BCA regulations.
