Lesmurdie Senior High School

Location: Lesmurdie, Western Australia

Client: Robinson Build-tech

Project Background:
Situated in the Shire of Kalamunda, Lesmurdie Senior High School caters for students from year 7 through to year 12. As part of the State Government’s transition of Year 7 students to secondary schools, Lesmurdie Senior High School procured new classrooms that required barrier protection for approaching pathways, ramps and stairwells.

Moddex were selected for the supply of compliant barrier protection for stairs, ramps and the perimeter of new classrooms at the school.

Products/configurations used on project:
Available off the shelf for immediate installation, Assistrail AR30 and AR40 configurations were identified for compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and AS 1428.1/2009 for schools across designated pathways, ramps and stairwells.

Why was Moddex product selected?
Through selecting Moddex, Lesmurdie Senior High School controlled custom fabrication costs and lead times to an absolute minimum. Assistrail configurations designed and pre-engineered for compliance, together with custom fabrication components, combined to deliver a fast and effective solution consistent with the architect’s aesthetic design.

Client comment/feedback:
During the initial on-site consultation, Moddex consultants offered expert advice on adjustments to initial architectural drawings for compliance with Australian Standards. Several areas with either a sheer drop of over one metre, or close proximity to rocky terrain were identified as potential hazards for students. To achieve compliance, Moddex recommended we adjust the architectural drawings to include additional fall protection.
