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. To the front of the building, the egg shaped Learning Resource Centre reads as a dramatic statement of quality at the entrance to the facility.
