Capabilities and Education Experience

Since 1989, Spantech has successfully delivered Educational facilities to State, Catholic and Independent Schools.  Universities and Child Care Centres also use Spantech education buildings.

Unique Technology for Innovative Solutions

The company designs and constructs buildings using our patented Spantech Construction System.

The system is versatile and well proven.

The Spantech Construction System features straight and curved roofing panels used to provide frameless, wide-span buildings.  The curved panels can span up to 40 metres without the need for any trusses or internal columns.

Panels are manufactured on site with a mobile rollforming machine.  The efficient construction method ensures Spantech buildings are very fast to construct, strong and low maintenance.

Our people are experienced, professional and highly skilled.

All our team pass a police check before being assigned to sensitive projects such as Education and Defence projects.

Management Systems Tailored to Suit Education Projects

The management systems used to design and construct our Education projects are tailored to suit the specific challenges of working in operating schools.  Our systems are safe and low impact. Our teams work closely with our education clients to coordinate major activities to minimise disruption to the school community at all times.

Making Building for Education Easy

Collaboration

Spantech work with the school’s preferred Architect to help achieve the best results from our technology.  Spantech supplies and erects the roofing system and any additional construction services required by the Architect.  Where required, contractors tender on the remaining scope of works.

Alternatively, Spantech can work directly with the school as Principal Contractor to provide a complete Design and Construction package that suits the budget and timeframe of the school.

Costs are reviewed by a Quantity Surveyor to ensure our quote is competitive.

Either way we aim to be flexible to ensure the design and construction process is simple and delivers excellent value for money for our Clients.

Education Facility Grant Applications

Spantech can provide the information required to assist schools to prepare their BGA Grant Applicat ion including detailed project scope, budget and preliminary project drawings.

Using our independently certified quality, safety and environmental system, Spantech can ensure a comprehensive and professional service from concept to handover and beyond.

Spantech Buildings for Education

Our patented construction system opens up a world of possibilities unachievable with conventional construction methods.

Spantech’s open sided covered outdoor learning areas (COLAs) are low maintenance, long life and provide good protection from sun, heat and rain.

With up to a 25 year warranty and an expected life of more than 50 years, Spantech COLAs are far more economical than shade sails over the longer term.

The truss-free design ensures there is no place for birds to roost or balls to become lodged.

Multipurpose Court Shade Structure

Spantech Shade Structures can span up to 40 metres wide.  They can accommodate a full sized netball courts with competition sized run off areas.

The structures are ideal for all types of court based sports including basketball, netball, tennis, volleyball, badminton and futsal.

Spantech Shade Structures can be designed to be enclosed in the future to create a multipurpose hall or indoor sports centre.

Multipurpose Halls

Multipurpose halls, assembly halls, theatres and gymnasiums are designed to accommodate a wide range of school activities.

High ceilings and excellent ventilation make the buildings ideal for indoor sports and large gatherings.

In high risk areas the buildings can be upgraded to meet Australian Standards for community cyclone shelters or community fire refuges making the facility an asset for the whole community.

New Schools

Spantech also provides the roofing system for a number of complete “green field” schools.

All education buildings can use Spantech roofing, not just the large sport facilities. Class rooms, administration blocks, amenities and covered walkways.

Repeating the roofing design across many buildings provides design cohesion and creates architectural possibilities. And when applied at scale, the roofing system presents excellent value for money.  Broad application of Spantech is a very economical alternative to conventional roofing.

Sample projects include: St Joseph’s College, Coomera, Mount View High School, Cessnock and others.

Child Care Centres

Spantech has constructed a number of very successful child care centres.

Designs focus on creating safe, stimulating and comforting environments for children. Just as important to design are the centre’s functionality, manageability, regulatory compliance and profitability.

Distinctive design features include a central multipurpose covered space for all-weather play and expansive classrooms with good natural ventilation and ample natural light.

Aquatic Centres

Spantech can cover any size new or existing  swimming pool including 50 metre eight lane Olympic standard pools.

Spantech swimming pool enclosures make swimming lessons and training possible year round.  Designs include excellent natural light, controllable ventilation and low maintenance finishes.

Spantech swimming pool enclosures reduce evaporation and the ongoing costs of chemicals, heating and maintenance while  maximising potential income for the facility.

Whole of life costs

Spantech buildings are very cost effective.  They present excellent value for money at both the initial capital expenditure and even better value for money over the life of the building. Our extensive list of education projects demonstrates value throughout the operational life:

  • Patented construction technology and construction techniques which reduce construction time for earlier occupation.
  • Reduced construction resources and waste.
  • Reduced construction labour force.
  • Very effective quality assurance system.
  • Low ongoing operating costs.
  • Minimal maintenance costs.
  • Extended manufacturer’s warrantees (subject to conditions).
