Description

The two storey steel framed structure supports exposed precast concrete plank floors and roofs which transmit heating/cooling and ventilation via the Termodeck system, which in turn is linked to geothermal heat pumps. The roof planks to the three learning wings are laid to a 10 degree pitch providing positive roof drainage and an aesthetic appearance to the interior of the building. A feature of the 11-16 Centre is the sweeping curved raking roof to the community wing forming a prominent frontage at the main entrance of the academy.
