Hutchies is honoured to have built Queensland’s first large-scale modular education building at Pallara State School. This enormous complex is made up 66 modules which adds 15 GLAs, 2 specialist teaching spaces, 2 staffrooms, 5 PLAs, student / staff / cleaners’ amenities and multiple collaboration breakout spaces throughout the 3 storey building.

Pallara is a relatively new school, delivered in a recent Queensland PPP package. Due to exponential growth in the area, fast tracked expansion was required to cater to student numbers ready for the 2021 school year.

Hutchies' in-house design and construction specialists worked closely with the Department of Education to push the boundaries of design to create this cutting edge new facility through our Hutchies Modular custom construction solutions. Pallara State School's solution is a flagship example of excellence in design, engineering and construction innovation for pre-fabricated buildings, opening the door to a range of new solutions in the future.

The entire brief, design, construction, transport, installation and commissioning process was completed within just 24 weeks.

Over the past several years, our Hutchies Modular division has been working closely with the Queensland Department of Education across hundreds of prefabricated school buildings throughout the state. These have included single, double and now triple storey configurations. They are designed strictly in line with DoE's facility guidelines, built in our dedicated modular yard at Yatala, transported to each school, and carefully installed by our team.
