UniSA City West Child Care Centre 

Grieve Gillett Andersen was engaged to prepare designs for a new 96 child care centre using modular construction. 

 

The site of the original TAFE operated child care centre, owned by the University of South Australia (UniSA), is immediately adjacent the new Geoffrey Smart Building. The site is currently being redeveloped to accommodate the new UniSA Great Hall, creating a ceremonial and activity centre for the UniSA City West campus.

 

The location for the Child Care Centre on Waymouth Street contained contaminated material, as the site was previously a car sales and service centre. GGA managed site remediation by liaising with contamination consultants and independent environmental auditors.

 

Modular construction provided flexibility for future developments of the site, as well as programme benefits due to the modular units being fabricated off-site, while site remediation works were undertaken. Modular construction also simplifies relocating the Centre to an alternative site in future, if more intensive, education core-based development was needed on the City West campus.

 

GGA undertook a study tour of modular construction workshops, before preparing design and documentation to suit modular methodologies, and worked closely with the modular contractor to deliver this project.
