BRIEF
Wyndham Central College wanted to upgrade their central walkway and seating area by providing a new roof structure over this space. This covered space was designed to provide a waterproof link between buildings, widening out at one end to cover the seating/passive area.  The original area was very exposed to the elements which made it uncomfortable for students and staff and resulted in very limited use of the space.

OUR APPROACH
The final design was developed as a skillion steel roof structure to match the style of surrounding buildings and simplify the stormwater management. The end of the structure widens out into a custom end cantilever which mirrors the layout of the existing garden and paving edges below it and maximises the shade coverage. The use of a cantilevered end keeps the posts from obstructing the flow of the area which also minimises the risk of them becoming a hazard.

OUTCOME
The addition of extra seating and synthetic grass under the structure has completely transformed the space and it is now a popular and well used area in the school for staff and students! The selection of Colorbond finishes matches to the surrounding buildings, and along with the very robust hot dip galvanised structural steelwork, has provided the college with a very durable structure.

I find engaging with Greenline completely professional. The customer service is exemplary and the three projects I have been involved in with Greenline gives me confidence in their communication, ability to meet deadlines and appease a customer, quality of work, competency in meeting regulations and OHS measures

Wodonga Primary School - Damian Duncan - Principal

I have used Greenline for a number of years now as I have always found them to provide excellent customer service, great quality and reliability. Our most recent project was a covered walkway to provide extra shelter for our students.

From day one, the walkway was such a big hit, with so many students using it that we actually had to provide extra staff in the area for additional student supervision. Thank you Greenline.

Greenline did a great job here and I would recommend them to any school wanting to develop a COLA.
