Stayover by Ausco

SMART SPACES FOR PEOPLE TO LIVE

In Australia, our ‘Stayover’ locations are helping mining and oil and gas communities live and work in a network of fully serviced, managed accommodation villages.

These villages serve mining and infrastructure clients, allowing remote workers to live and work in high-quality spaces. We recognised that the market for worker accommodation was failing to meet the needs of customers. Sub-standard accommodation was being provided in either basic camps, local motels or shared-housing. Businesses did not have the resource or capacity to manage all aspects of developing, constructing and operating a camp.

In response, Ausco established a new, dedicated business unit to provide a full turn-key solution to customers, encompassing the design, development, building, operating and maintenance of a camp. Our eight villages boast fully equipped rooms, self-service laundries, a range of onsite recreational facilities including gymnasium, and outdoor leisure areas including well equipped BBQ’s, indoor lounge areas and entertainment centres. Safe and comfortable, all villages have onsite management to assist in providing a stress-free living environment for our guests.

Hyrdo Aluminium fire station

SMART SPACES FOR PEOPLE TO WORK

When Hydro Aluminium’s fire station at its plant no longer met safety requirements, Algeco used its modular space expertise to design and install a new temporary factory fire station.

The modular approach meant there was less disruption to on-site production and equally it would be flexible enough that it could be moved to an alternative location if required.

The new station meets stringent fire safety requirements and red façade ensures the building stands out from the others and can be seen from a distance. The entire structure used 18 modules across two floors creating a space of 370 square metres.

It includes fully equipped common living rooms for the fire fighters, as well as a kitchen, bathrooms, comfortable sleeping areas and a well-equipped fitness room.

A good relationship with the customer, and regular communication throughout the process, helped ensure that the installation of the high spec building was on time, and provided the flexibility of use the customer needed.

Algeco school in Barcelona

SMART SPACES FOR PEOPLE TO LEARN

An example of Algeco’s ability to provide smart places for people to learn comes from Spain, where we have helped provide new public school places for the City of Barcelona.

Facing an urgent need to respond to growing demand for public school places, the city worked with Algeco to help open more new schools for the 2017-18 academic year than at any period in the preceding decade.

Our designers and engineers worked with the experts – the teachers and children - to deliver high quality, vibrant spaces which enhanced the learning experience. These buildings had excellent finishes, and high quality thermal as well as acoustic insulation. The comfort and well-being of students and teachers was central to the project, including large classrooms, air conditioning and generously sized windows to allow the entry of natural light. Another benefit of this modular space solution for education is the ability and flexibility of the space which can be quickly adapted to meet future requirements such as extending classrooms, storage or dining room space.

Bordeaux school - architect credit Christophe Cornale, architecte DPLG

In 2016, the local authority in Bordeaux, the Bordeaux Metropole, required the creation of several new educational and recreational facilities including schools, sporting facilities, creches and office space. Bordeaux Metropole needed the school to provide more spaces at both nursery and primary level. It also needed to be completed in a short time-scale to be ready for the new academic year in September 2017.

Working closely with the local authority, Algeco France and architect Christophe Cornale designed and delivered a new, state-of-the-art school which both met the requirements of the children and adhered to the high health and safety standards required for school buildings. In addition to meeting these requirements, Algeco France also ensured the final space was attractive to the children and that it integrated seamlessly with the surrounding environment.

The final school building totalled 2,539 square metres and included a range of classroom sizes and facilities, including bathrooms, administrative offices and kitchen and dining facilities. The space was specifically designed to be bright, welcoming and engaging.

In addition to the state-of-the-art school buildings, the project team created special play areas outside for children to both play and learn in a safe environment.

The Alfred Daney School was Algeco France's first project for the Bordeaux Metropole. The project was praised by Alain Juppe, Mayor of Bordeaux who attended the opening of the school in September 2017. In particular, he was impressed by the large, bright classrooms and the general aesthetics of the building.
