State Education Minister James Merlino recently visited Glengala Primary School to celebrate the near completion of Sensum’s permanent modular building project. The Minister also announced a further $4.2 million to replace Glengala’s asbestos riddled main wing with another state of the art permanent modular school building.
Channel 7 News documented the site visit and announcement. The Glengala building and several other Sensum projects were covered by Channel 7 in their 6pm Melbourne News. The coverage showcased the benefits of permanent modular construction and its use in the education sector. Watch the full video here.
The current $1.5 million project at Glengala Primary School will be completed in the coming weeks. Consequently, students and teachers will move in for Term 3. The Angelucci Architects designed building will include four general purposes classrooms and a library, comprised of 12 modules.
Sensum CEO Nick Strongman, Program Manager Adam Shkolnik and Project Manager Mark Cox were joined by the James Merlino ministerial team in addition to members of the Victorian School Building Authority, project architect Enza Angelucci and head contractor Grove Group.
Glengala’s students, teachers and principle Kris White were in attendance to celebrate their new facilities. Sensum looks forward to continuing our contribution to the Victorian School Building Authority’s Permanent Modular School Building Program.
