Seeonee Fire Refuge
- Managing Contractor - Lump Sum
Cook Building was engaged by MDLR and Das Studio to construct a state-of-the-art fire refuge centre, located in the Adelaide Hills, for Scouts SA at Woodhouse Activity Centre.
A hybrid method of construction was adopted for this project as a collaboration between Cook Building, MDLR and Das Studio to assist the project schedule by reducing the onsite construction timeframe. The main hub of the building, including all centre amenities, was built in a traditional in-situ fashion, while two open functional areas that sit adjacent were constructed offsite in a manufacturing facility through a volumetric modular design.
The objective of the modular/hybrid methodology was to deliver a product of equal quality to a traditional build methodology that is visually indistinguishable.
Construction of the modules in the facility reduced the impact of inclement weather delays to the project and provided a safer construction environment for all workers, out of the elements.
